Moisture and Instability associated with the remnants of a tropical wave will continue to affect the British Virgin Islands. Possible rainfall total for the forecast period is 30 to 50 mm or 1.18 or 2 inches; hence a flood watch is in effect for low lying and flood prone areas of the British Virgin Islands until 8 a.m. tomorrow Sunday.
A Flash Flood Watch means that moderate to major flooding is possible but not imminent in the watch area. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Residents in low lying and flood prone areas should make preparations for flooding to safe guard life and property. They should be prepared to move to higher ground if flooding rains develop or a flash flood warning is issued.
Please continue to monitor local media stations, DDM’s website (bviddm.com) and Facebook at BVIDDM for regular updates.
