Met office issues a flood warning for Barbados

A flood warning is in effect for Barbados.

According to The Barbados Meteorological Services, the interaction of an upper-level trough system and a passing tropical wave has been generating some pockets of moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and isolated thunderstorms across the island.

The Met office cautioned that the activity is likely to intensify into tomorrow and

rainfall accumulations of three to five inches are likely.

It has advised residents in flood probe areas to exercise caution and remain on alert.

    Weather people sometimes tell you that rain is expected and then there is no rain. They seem to refer to the weather after it has passed and gonel

    A Flood-Warning means that some flooding is already occurring or is imminent…..and a forecast is for the WHOLE ISLAND and not one particular area as you are telling yourself
    If you still do not understand …if it is not raining in your area,it is raining in other areas.
    Don’t know why people like you complain…just ignore the information coming out of the local Met.Office then and do your own thing.

    Barbados will continue to be flooded whenever there is heavy rain because people would not stop littering. When one passes wells one can see the litter at the mouth of these wells, so we will have to suffer the consequences for these disgusting acts.
    The Ministry of Transport needs to take a look at the structure of our roads – there are no slipper drains at the side of the road in which the water runs off, rather the water runs on the road thus causing erosion of the roads.

    I think Barbadians are continually playing Russian Roulette with areas that are flooding when there is two or three inches of rain.If there is nothing done that would allow water to be tunneled into areas or the sea that can alleviate flooding ,then it’s only a matter of time before death will be the result.Barbados fortunately has not been hit by a Hurricane that brings lots of rain in many years and it would seem that complacency has stepped in.Drainage is poor .Garbage dumping will also add to aiding in the blockage of the movement of water.If nothing is done while there is time then when the real test comes we’ll all be in danger..
