Flooding in north, west of island
Parts of Barbados were covered in water as heavy rains caused flooding in the northern and western sections yesterday.
The rains, accompanied by lightning and thunder, were especially felt in St James, where in addition to flooding, there was a loss of electricity in some areas.
The heavens opened just after midday resulting in torrents of water descending on to The Garden and causing motorists to slow down as they tried to manoeuvre through the rising waters and debris in the road.
At Trents, homes were surrounded by water and the road through Trents Tenantry became impassable to small vehicles, while some larger ones managed to make it through the muddy waters. (CA/RL)
