|The former Meteorological Service of the Netherlands
Antilles and Aruba ceased to exist on October 10, 2010.
This is the consequence of the dismantling of the Netherlands Antilles
that has taken place on October 10, 2010. As has been published lately
The Netherlands Antilles ceased to exist; Curacao and Sint Maarten have
become autonomous parties within the Kingdom of the Netherlands
(as is Aruba since 1986) and Bonaire, Statia and Saba have come
under direct jurisdiction of The Netherlands. It has been decided by the
Government of Aruba to have its own Meteorological Service,
separately from the former Netherlands Antilles.
