Flash flood warning in effect
A flash flood warning is in effect for western, southwestern and central districts of Barbados.
The Barbados Meteorological Services says this will be in place from 11:15 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. However, it may be updated sooner if conditions warrant.
A flash flood warning is issued when rapid flooding due to heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than six hours) is occurring or is imminent in the warning area.
Originally, maximum rainfall accumulations of 25 to 50mm in heavy showers were forecast over the warning area, but that was updated to 40 to 100 mm in heavy to violent showers. (PR/SAT)
