More rain forecast for Sunday

Social Share

At 6 p.m., the Barbados Meteorological Services extended the flash-flood warning in effect for the island until midnight.

It has been in place for most of the weekend.

Over the past 24 hours, three to four inches of rainfall was recorded across some sections of the island, resulting in isolated flooding throughout the day. Due to the fact that soils are saturated, additional isolated downpours during the early part of tonight could result in further flooding.

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. (PR/SAT)
