A FLASH FLOOD Warning has been issued by the Barbados Meteorological Services and it will remain in effect until noon.

Acting deputy director Sonia Nurse said the interaction of a trough system and the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) has been producing moderate to heavy showers, some isolated thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds across Barbados.

“Some flash-flooding has already been reported with latest radar and satellite imagery indicating that this activity will persist for much of today. Due to the water-logged nature of the soils, any additional rains may result in further flooding,” she said.

Residents in low-lying areas prone to flooding should remain on the alert and take the necessary precautions. (PR/NB)
