31ST May 2019 – A low level trough and abundant moisture continues to intensify unsettled weather across the region. Showers and thunderstorms remain south of the British Virgin Islands, and have the potential to impact us as they are expected to shift further north east. These showers have affected much of the Leeward Islands and a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for those Islands until 8pm. A Flash Flood Watch may be issued for the British Virgin Islands tomorrow if heavier showers are anticipated in our vicinity.
Residents are encouraged to monitor weather conditions for any sudden changes. Persons living in areas prone to flooding should safeguard important items from water damage and be prepared to leave the area in case of flooding. Persons in low-lying areas should check their property to ensure there is adequate run off and clear all drains of debris.
Persons at home and abroad are encouraged to download the DDM’s Alert app in the Apple App store or Google Play store to receive updates of any hazards affecting the Territory.
