Gunpowder warehouse still does not meet necessary requirements

gunpowder storageWILLEMSTAD - The temporary location of the gunpowder warehouse at Brievengat is unsafe. That can be deduced from news coverage of the Caribbean Network. Three years after the big fireworks in Anasa there is still no new, permanent location for a gunpowder storage place.

Monitoring is nowhere in sight. There is no firewater and there are holes in the fence.

According to the fire department, the Department of Public Works is responsible. A plus point for the fire department is that if something goes wrong, the gunpowder is now on a safe distance from civilization.
