The Event

Hurricane Tomas began to impact the Caribbean islands from Friday October 29, 2010 as a strong tropical wave which quickly developed to a Tropical Storm and upgraded to Hurricane status by October 30 2010.  Tomas’ strength fluctuated during its passage across the Caribbean islands. By November 6, Tomas had resulted in ten (10) of the CDEMA Participating States (PS) initiating the activation of National Emergency Operation procedures and creating extensive damage and loss of life in some States.
