Dust haze advisory in effect
A dust haze advisory was issued by Barbados Meteorological Services at 6 a.m. today and will be updated at 6 p.m. or sooner if conditions warrant.
The Met Office said an advisory is issued when dust haze has already or is forecast to reduce visibility to between five and ten km within 36 hours.
A significant Sahara Dust outbreak is likely to affect the island and marine area. Residents and visitors should be aware of some slight reduction to visibility due to dust haze.
People with respiratory issues or allergies should ensure that they travel with, or have close at hand, all prescribed medications.
Marine users should monitor the situation closely, along with the forecast for any further deterioration. (PR)
