The Director of the National Office of Disaster Services, Philmore Mullin is confident that Barbuda can endure another Hurricane season.
Mullin says this does not mean that another storm like Hurricane Irma would not cause serious damage.
But he is confident that the two hundred homes on which roofs have been repaired along with four shelters that have undergone work, can weather a powerful storm.
He also says NODS has been in a constant state of activity since Irma and stands ready to respond to a disaster.
Mullin was speaking to OBSERVER on Wednesday morning as the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season continues to occupy the minds of those at NODS. 
The season begins in June 1st. While the NODS director is pleased with repairs to roofs, he says shutters and doors are now a priority.
Mullin is also encouraging residents in Antigua not to become complacent and to prepare for the upcoming season.
He says what happened to Barbuda in September of 2017 could happen to Antigua.
