ENVIRONMENT: A substantial arrival of sargassum expected this week


In its latest published bulletin, Météo France predicts a strong risk of grounding this week on the coasts of Saint-Martin and Saint-Barth.

According to images from April 28 to 1er May, the dominant flows around the archipelago are from the south-east. Saint-Barthélemy is very clearly surrounded by a wave of numerous rafts of fairly small sizes. Arrivals are in progress on the East and South-East of the island and will continue throughout the week. This same wave is already affecting the Dutch part of Saint-Martin. The first rafts were to hit the East of the French part from Tuesday May 2.
