Issuing the alert is the Lands and Surveys Department.

The press statement explained that the Lands and Surveys Department will be seeking to capture aerial photography over the next nine days. The Aerial Photography project will conclude Sunday, December 1, and it will be conducted daily between 9 am and 4 pm. 

The aim of the project is reportedly to acquire high resolution imagery in order to update the national maps. As such, a light aircraft will be traversing the island at a low altitude during this period.
