Delaware’s tourism office has issued a travel advisory for the state of South America due to a “large wind advisory” affecting the region.
“We are advising all visitors to South America to avoid all travel to and from South America and any area of the Caribbean Sea,” said the Delaware Department of Tourism.
“As the wind is blowing south at a high rate, this could cause significant impacts to the Delaware region, especially the Delaware Coast.”
In a statement, the tourism office said that travelers will need to consider alternate travel routes if they want to visit Chile, including a visit to the Caribbean Islands.
The US has been battered by severe storms in recent months, including the strongest storm in 50 years that caused extensive damage to Florida.
