The morning storm interrupts the Earth Day Coastal Cleanup at Tanah Merah

After many steaming hot days, coordinators packed sun block lotion and sent out an additional warning about sandflies. However this morning, storm clouds brushing the southern coast of Singapore, dumped a load of rain in the west and headed east. As the clouds began showing up in the skies above Tanah Merah, the Earth Day Coastal Cleanup coordinators were forced to evacuate the beach around 9.15am.

Lightning is a real threat so coordinators have to clear the beach – yet another responsibility of Coordinators and Organisers. Still, the storm will clear up soon, so let’s hope the interruption is not too long and they can return to the shore to continue the Earth Day cleanup in cloudy and cool conditions.
