The Choiseul PowerHouse is “powering ahead” in Cyberspace with the speed of light. Some claim we are hard-hitting and controversial; some claim we are intellectual and academic! Some even claim we are political! Everybody is right! We are all of those things! We have a diverse global audience and it is our pleasure to stimulate your intellectual taste buds and we make no apologies for that. The bottomline is we are independent and have no affinity to any organisation: political or otherwise! We will continue to publish our "power articles"

We wish to extend special thanks to followers for their support. We also encourage you to post your comments and feedback on the Blog using the comments link following the Articles.

Come on NEMO! Come on PM King! Say Something!

Isn’t it strange that the governments of all the territories affected by Emily except St. Lucia have issued statements to their citizen?  Is it that we are not being or will not be affected by Emily?

Will there be absolutely no hazards affecting our land and the waters around us? Why are there no hazard warnings to the people of Fond St. Jacques, Bexon, Jertrine, Saltibus and Daban etc? Why are there no small craft warnings to the fishermen, asking them to ensure the safety of their boats?.

Fishermen on the West Coast will be especially vulnerable because the winds will approaching from the opposite direction, because of the counter-clockwise circulation of a hurricane. This has serious implications for the potential magnitude and intensity of storm surges. Has the appropriate authority told the fishermen about that?
