St. Vincent and the Grenadines and other countries in the Caribbean region are likely to experience extreme weather conditions in the upcoming months, according to a prediction from the CARICOM Outlook Forum (CARI-COF).
Word of this has come from Senior Engineer responsible for Water Resource Management at the Central Water and Sewage Authority (CWSA), Bernard Maloney.
Speaking at a News Conference this morning, Mr. Maloney said the data received from CARI-COF shows that St. Vincent and the Grenadines will experience drought conditions later this year.
Mr. Maloney explained that CARICOF compiles data based on the Standardised Precipitation Index (SPI), which is a method of measuring rainfall, which was developed by the Colorado University.
Mr Maloney, said the SPI data shows that St. Vincent and the Grenadines is likely to experience severely dry weather conditions for the rest of the year.
