The Barbados-based Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum, CariCOF says many parts of the Caribbean have become drier since December last year.

CariCOF in its February issue of the Caribbean Drought Bulletin says major concerns exist in the southern Caribbean, including from northern Guyana to Barbados and west to Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao for short term drought.

It can impact small rivers, streams and ponds, by the end of April 2019.

CariCOF says significant concerns also exist over long term drought that can impact large rivers and reservoirs, and groundwater by the end of May 2019, in parts of the eastern Caribbean, Jamaica, Hispaniola and southern French Guiana.
