THIS CHRISTMAS, Barbadians are being advised to stay away from the ocean as the country is under a high surf advisory and small craft warning, which will remain in effect until December 27.
The Barbados Meteorological Services issued a Press release yesterday in which it warned of hazardous marine conditions due to a “deep-layered low pressure system” in the north-central Atlantic ocean.
The release stated that the system was “generating large northerly swells which would impact the northern, eastern and western coastlinesof Barbados”.
“All users of these coastal areas are advised to be vigilant for large breaking waves surging onto the shore and should stay clear of the beaches wherever possible while small-craft should avoid navigating in these hazardous marine conditions,”the release added. (CA
