Flood warning in effect
The Barbados Met Office has issued a flood warning for Barbados.
This means that some flooding is already occurring or is likely to occur.
A bulletin from the Met Office today said: “The combination of a trough system and the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (I.T.CZ) has been generating pockets of moderate to heavy showers and periods of rain across Barbados during the last few hours. These conditions are expected to persist during the afternoon with some improvement likely into tonight.”
Rainfall accumulations of at least two to three inches (50 to 75 millimeters) are possible.
Residents in flood prone areas should take the necessary precautions.
