Angry seas lash Batts Rock

The sea swells?along Batts Rock, St James, might not have been on the radar of the Meteorological Office at the Grantley Adams International Airport, but they were certainly angry enough to catch the lenses of photographer Basil Griffith yesterday.
“There was no warning or advisory as such, but we were carrying seas in the region of about two to two and a half metres (six to seven feet). Although that will be above normal, it would not be at a height that we would issue a warning or advisory,” said Clem Williams, acting senior meteorologist.
He said the swells might have been some small-scale feature that the Meteorological Office would not be able to account for, and “I can’t say what would have generated them”.
This weekend seas should remain above normal between two and half to three metres and will be rough in open water. Seabathers should therefore exercise caution.
