It was difficult going for motorists this morning as several areas across Barbados were flooded as heavy rainfall lashed the island.

The Barbados Meteorological Service said the worst is over and partly cloudy to cloudy and hazy conditions are expected for the rest of the day with a few scattered showers and the chance of isolated thunderstorms.

    No strategic infurstructor planning what so ever, year in year out, cant anyone with authority consider storm drainage, under road tunnels. so much can be done, its simple logic , the expensive damage cause by flooding, to roads some agriculture and local homes can so easily be avoided, so simple.
    Hello is anyone out there listening or care. or only when certain people are effected something will be done.
