Flash Flood Warning area expanded

September 28th, 2022

A Flash Flood Warning is in effect for central districts of Barbados.

This warning follows one issued around midday for western districts.

The Barbados Meteorological Services says the Intertropical Convergence Zone, in combination with a low-level trough system continues to affect Barbados. This afternoon, 4 inches of rainfall was recorded in Holetown. With the observed reduction in wind speeds, localized activity is expected across northern, northeastern, western, and central parishes this afternoon. This activity is likely to generate further accumulations of up to 3 inches.

Due to the already saturated nature of the soils, any additional rainfall is likely to cause flooding.

This alert will be updated at 6:00 p.m. or sooner if conditions warrant.
