Flood warning extended

The flood warning in Barbados has been extended until 2 p.m.

Throughout the morning, heavy to intense shower activity was experienced across parts of St James, St Peter and St Lucy.

Over the past six hours, these areas have recorded between 25mm to 110 mm (one to four inches) of rainfall. Central and eastern parts of the island have since received between a half inch to an inch of rainfall.

Although much of the intense shower activity has abated, isolated pockets of moderate to heavy showers are likely over the next few hours as conditions remain unstable across the island.

Excessive rainfall in northern and western sections has made some roads impassable with fields inundated. As a result, a flood warning remains in effect.

A flood warning is issued when flooding is occurring or is imminent within the next 48 hours. (PR/SAT)
