The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has advised that it is important to store an adequate supply of water for each individual and pets during the hurricane season.

The minimum recommended amount for drinking, food preparation and personal hygiene is five gallons per person, per day for at least five days. Additionally, water must be stored in clean, covered containers.

The public is urged to follow the guidelines of the Ministry of Health for further information on safe water storage.
