Flood warning issued for Barbados

A FLOOD WARNING has been issued for Barbados and will initially remain in effect until 6 p.m.

Residents in flood prone areas should exercise caution and remain on the alert.

The axis of a tropical wave, currently moving across the Lesser Antilles has   been generating cloudy to overcast skies, moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms across Barbados during the last few hours.

Some flash-flooding is already occurring due to the saturated nature of the soils from rains experienced earlier this week.

A further deterioration in conditions is expected during the course of the afternoon and into tonight, while rainfall accumulations of at least 50 to 75 mm (2 to 3 inches) are possible.

A flood warning means that flooding is imminent or is already occurring.

This warning may be extended if necessary.
