Flash-flood warning extended

The flash-flood warning for Barbados will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Sunday.

A flash-flood warning is issued when rapid flooding due to heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time (generally less than six hours) is occurring or is imminent in the warning area.

Maximum rainfall accumulations of 10.0 to 50.0 mm in moderate to heavy showers are expected throughout the night.

Accumulations of 10.0 to 35.0 mm have already been recorded across the island. Conditions are saturated in some areas, particularly in the southern sections of the island.

The warning may be discontinued sooner if conditions warrant. (PR/SAT)
