Flood watch in effect for some sections of the island

A flood watch is now in effect for western and north western sections of the island until 6:00 p.m today.

The Barbados Meteorological services says a combination of light winds, strong daytime heating and an abundance of moisture are generating cloudy skies, some moderate to heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms over the northern half of the island.

Director of the Met Service, Hampden Lovell has urged residents in flood prone areas to exercise caution and remain alert.

    Some areas are being blessed more than others. Maybe that is worthy of noting, as rain at times seem to bypass some areas quite often ,and falls just beyond . Maybe there is something to this.
