Flash-flood warning in effect


Share post:

A flash-flood warning is in effect for northern and north-eastern sections of Barbados.

The Barbados Meteorological Services says it took effect from 1:50 p.m. today and the public will be updated around 6 p.m., or sooner if conditions warrant.

A flash-flood warning is issued when rapid flooding due to heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than 6 hours) is occurring or is imminent in the warning area.

Maximum rainfall accumulations of 25 to 50mm in moderate to heavy showers across sections of St Andrew during the early hours of this morning and early afternoon warranted the warning.

Residents and visitors should be aware of significant runoff from higher elevations, the settling of water on roads, ponds will become fuller and there may be traffic delays. (PR/SAT)
