It rained cats and dogs across the island throughout the day leaving several communities severely flooded.
Schools were closed; and several events were cancelled as roads quickly became waterlogged –– some made impassable –– by the heavy showers that had started from last night.
There were also reports of downed trees and power lines.
Forecasters at the Barbados Meterological Services explained that the persistent rain, isolated thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds had stemmed from the interaction between a trough system and the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone.
A flood warning issued at 6 a.m. was originally scheduled to expire at noon, but was later extended until 6 p.m.
