Why HUREX exercise now ? Traffic Colebay and Simpsonbay a mess



Colebay, Sint Maarten — Currently there is the yearly HUREX (hurricane preparedness exercise) ongoing in the Cay Bay area. Sirens are blaring and traffic is an ultimate disaster.

Why did government choose to do this exercise today, Tuesday, June 27, 2017, and why not on a Sunday?

The traffic in the Cole Bay, Simpson Bay area is in a serious disarray, with no available man power to direct the traffic.  Taxi drivers, Busses, delivery trucks and motorists are being seriously affected.

Although the exercise is a good idea, and probably needed, another day, instead of a weekday could have been chosen to carry out this exercise
