Boat owners throughout the country were this morning advised to pull their vessels to higher ground as authorities urged precautionary measures ahead of the passage of Tropical Storm Bertha.

The Met Services said even though the warning had been discontinued at 11 am, some showers and thunderstorm activity could still occur from south easterly feeder bands leading to possible rainfall accumulations of between one and three inches during the late afternoon.

On its present track, the center of Bertha is forecast to pass about 75 miles to the north of Barbados in a few hours time.DSC_0223

Forecasters say sea conditions and swells may range between two to three metres mainly to the east of and north coastal regions.

This morning deputy chief fisheries officer Joyce Leslie met with fishermen at Pile Bay fishing village, Spring Garden to advise them of what measures to take.
