AG: Be safe


Share post:

Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite is appealing to Barbadians to be safe on the roads today.
With a flood warning in effect for Barbados until 6 p.m. and reports of residents across the island, particularly in the south, affected by the rising waters threatening many of their homes, Brathwaite called for caution.
He was speaking earlier at a Press conference at the headquarters of the Department of Management (DEM) in Warrens, St Michael.
He noted that since late last night and early today severe weather has been affecting Barbados. He said there were reports of flooding in areas like Wotton, Oistins, Kendal and Gall Hill in Christ Church.
The AG said there were no “real reports” coming from the north, which he said was unusual for flood prone areas like Holetown in St James.
Brathwaite said they were doing all they can to assist those residents who were in need of help but noted emergencies would be top priority.
“We can’t respond to all requests at the same time. We don’t have that capacity, but continue to feed us the information,” he said.
The Minister of Home Affairs said they have also taken all the necessary precautions to allow crews to respond. “We will respond on a case by case basis as the need arises,” he added.
