Basseterre, St. Kitts, 30th November, 2018 (MyVueNews.com) – Residents across the Caribbean, including St. Kitts and Nevis, are breathing a sigh of relief, now that the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season is over.

The season officially runs from June to November each year, though disaster management experts always caution about the possibility of that unexpected weather system that could cause serious damage, though the main events have ended.

Thankfully, this year, St. Kitts and Nevis had no storms to battle, as the islands were able to experience a somewhat uneventful season.

Despite its good fortunes, local leaders, led by those in the religious community are taking measures to show gratitude for being spared the loss of life and property damage that usually accompany the storms that impact the islands.

Member churches of the Christian Council have therefore invited Kittitians and Nevisians “to join in praise, worship and thanksgiving for the mercies of God in sparing St. Kitts and Nevis from the ravages of hurricanes during this season, said a release from government.

A Thanksgiving Service to mark the successful end of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season will be held at the Zion Moravian Church, on Sunday 2nd December, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.

In 2017, countries like St. Maarten, Dominica and Antigua & Barbuda, suffered tremendous damage, at the hands of Irma and Maria.
