Flood warning lifted

The flood warning which was issued for Barbados on Tuesday has been lifted.

In a brief statement this morning, the Barbados Meteorological Services said an analysis of the weather conditions which have been affecting the island over the past few days, indicate that the threat of flooding has diminished.

“Thus, the flood warning has been discontinued as of 10 a.m. Thursday, 26th October, 2017.

“However, conditions will remain unsettled over the next four to five days, with the potential for some outbreaks of showers during this time.

“Residents in flood prone areas should continue to exercise caution and remain on the alert,” the met office added in its 10 a.m. statement.

    Rural districts should have collectively and independently stored rain water in large containers or collecting tanks. Roof runoff should have been stored in shipping containers or 55 gallon brums.
