Share post:

Barbados Meteorological Services on Sunday issued a flash-flood warning for north-western districts and a flood watch for the island.

This alert message was valid from noon and will be updated at 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 six hours) is occurring or is imminent in the warning area.

A flood watch is issued when conditions are favourable for flooding within the next 48 hours. It does not mean flooding will occur, but it is possible. (PR)
