Part of the performance of our executive protection responsibilities for current clients and potential clients is to tap into resources dedicated to observing ongoing global risk hot spots or conditions.
The Central African Republic remains on the hot watch as rebel and militia fighting continues with deaths, and catastrophic flooding moved the country’s authorities to declare a national emergency.
Puerto Rico is on the global watch as a 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit southeast of Guanica. A 6.4 earthquake hit on January 7th, then the 6.0 quake on January 11th. Much of the power grid was shut down nationwide. The power is being restored, yet it is not known in detail the impact of the latest earthquake’s impact on power supplies.
Syria remains a consistent global hotspot as regime airstrikes continue in the Idlib Governarate with 17 deaths and 40 wounded. A ceasefire sought by Turkey has been implemented, but these ceasefires proved shortlived.
