Dust haze subsides in Barbados as BMS keeps close watch

The Barbados Meteorological Services (BMS) continues to track a large plume of dust haze affecting Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean. As of Monday, May 6th, 2024, the concentration of dust has begun to diminish, with a forecast of lingering haze throughout the week.

According to reports from the BMS, there are currently no advisories or warnings in effect for Barbados regarding this event. However, they continue to closely monitor the situation.

The dust haze may cause skies to appear slightly yellowish during daylight hours and could lead to reduced visibility across both land and marine areas. Nevertheless, authorities anticipate visibility to gradually improve from tonight into tomorrow.

Individuals are advised to adhere to guidance provided by the Ministry of Health and Wellness. Furthermore, operators of small marine vessels lacking GPS systems are encouraged to stay close to the shore as a precautionary measure.

The BMS underscores the importance of remaining vigilant and staying updated with official announcements as the situation evolves.

For further information and updates, citizens are urged to monitor official channels and announcements from the Barbados Meteorological Services.
