FLASH FLOOD WARNING ISSUED FOR THE VIRGIN ISLANDS

May 20, 2011476Views

The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Service has
issued a flash flood warning for low
lying and flood prone areas in the British Virgin Islands, valid until 2pm
today Friday, 20TH May 2011.

A flash flood warning means that flooding is imminent
or is already occurring in low lying and flood prone areas. Residents should do
what is necessary to save life and property. If you are in an area prone to
flooding, move to a safer location now. If you are already in a safe location
remain there until flood waters abate.

A surface trough aided by favorable upper level
conditions will continue to produce an unstable environment across the British
Virgin Islands today; hence, skies will be cloudy to overcast with
moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorms.
