High wind warning in effect for Barbados

A high wind warning is in effect for Barbados for the next five days.
According to the Barbados Meteorological Office, strong easterly winds of 25 to 39 miles per hour with gusts of 55 miles per hour began affecting the island from early this morning.
The forecasters warned that winds of this magnitude could cause isolated power outages and falling tree branches, and they urged residents to be vigilant for falling tree limbs and loose outdoor objects or light-weight furniture being tossed around.
The Met Office attributed the high winds to a building Atlantic high pressure system which is generating low level winds across Barbados and the Lesser Antilles.
The warning is scheduled to be lifted on Sunday at 8 a.m.
A small craft warning also remains in effect until then.

    Yes. A very wise warning. Those kind of winds can turn sharp edged things into deadly missiles.

    Ladies hold on to your wigs and/or flare skirts. If you only have one hand available at that time , choose wisely which is most important.
