FLASH FLOOD WATCH DISCONTINUED

FLASH FLOOD WATCH DISCONTINUED

November 8, 2017135Views

The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services has discontinued the flash flood watch, however showers are still possible.

As a trough remains just west of the British Virgin Islands, the chance for more showers remains very high.

With the soils in the Territory already saturated, additional rainfall can cause ponding on roads, extreme hillside water run-off, increased mudslides and falling rocks.

Residents are urged to exercise caution while driving and pay close attention to undermined sections of roads. Do not attempt to drive in fast moving water and caution should be exercised while driving across roads that are not visible due to flooding.

The Department of Disaster Management will continue to monitor the weather conditions and provide updates when necessary.

Please continue to monitor local media stations, DDM’s website at   bviddm.com) and Facebook at BVIDDM for regular updates.
