Flood Warning In Effect For Saint Vincent And The Grenadines
Thursday, 28 September 2017 11:34

At 9:30 a.m. today, Thursday, 28th September, the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services issued a Flood Warning for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines until 6:00 p.m.

This Flood Warning means that flooding is likely to occur.

The combination of an upper level trough and an easterly wave has been generating some moderate to heavy showers, periods of rain and scattered thunderstorms across our islands. As a consequence, a flood warning is now in effect for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.  Rainfall accumulations of 75 - 100 mm {3 - 4 inches} are likely.

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO), is advising residents, especially residents living in areas prone to flooding, land slippage and along river banks in the following areas to be vigilant and exercise caution: Basin Hole, Mt. Young, Gorse, Colonaire, South Rivers, Marriaqua, Calliaqua, Campden Park, Vermont, Buccament, Spring Village and Chateaubelair.

Moisture levels are expected to remain relatively high into the weekend, as a Tropical Wave is expected to approach the Eastern Caribbean by Saturday into Sunday.

The Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Meteorological Services will update this warning as necessary.
