FLOOD WARNING

A Flood Warning remains in effect for the St. Vincent and the Grenadines, until six this evening

A Flood Warning is issued when flooding is imminent or is already occurring. Overcast and breezy conditions are expected, with the potential for further outbreaks of moderate, heavy and at times isolated thundershowers across St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The National Emergency Management Organisation, NEMO says the possibility exists for isolated flooding in flood-prone areas. Slopes and hillsides are expected to become increasingly vulnerable to land slippage as soils are already saturated.

Rainfall accumulations are expected to increase up to 1.5 – 2 inches today. Moisture levels of near 2 inches are also expected on Saturday and Sunday.

This is expected to be accompanied by breezy conditions of about 25 to 40 kilometres per hour, becoming increasingly gusty with showers.

NEMO said it has already received several reports of landslides and flooding and is urging all 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, Chateaubelair and Mesopotamia.
