The Barbados Meteorological Services has issued a Flash-Flood Watch for central, western and north-western districts of Barbados.
A flash-flood watch is issued when heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than 6 hours) could result in flash
flooding within the watch area. It does not mean that flooding will occur, but it is possible.
Maximum Rainfall Accumulations of 25.0 to 50.0 mm in heavy showers are expected over central, western and north-western districts.
Key Message: Residents and visitors should be prepared for strong runoff from higher elevations. Soil erosion likely on bared or scarred
land surfaces. Debris such as small rocks, mud and tree foliage could end up on roads and property. Traffic delays are likely. Flooding
at the foot of hillsides and coastal roads is possible.
