Flood warning in effect until noon
A FLOOD WARNING is in effect for Barbados until noon today.
In a weather bulletin issued at 9 a.m., the Barbados Meteorological Services said residents in flood prone areas should continue to exercise caution and remain on the alert.
“Over the last several hours, a trough system interacting with the [Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone] has been generating cloudy to overcast skies, pockets of moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and occasional gusty winds across Barbados,” the bulletin said.
Some flash-flooding has already been reported and these conditions are expected to persist during the morning with a gradual improvement likely by afternoon.
This warning will be up-dated as necessary. (NB)
