Government offices and businesses will operate as normal today, Director of the Department of Emergency Management (DEM) Kerry Hinds has confirmed.
She however advised residents to be “vigilant and careful” as the Barbados Meteorological Office forecasts more rain and high winds as a result of the passage of Hurricane Maria.

“We had a few reports more so to the north and the central and eastern parts of the island.”
There are also reports of power outages in Wanstead, St James, Cave Hill, St Michael and in sections of St Peter.
