A flash flood warning for low lying and flood prone areas of Antigua is now in effect valid until 8 pm tonight. A flash flood warning means that moderate to major flooding is occurring or imminent in the warning area. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

If you are in low lying or flood prone areas, move quickly to higher ground immediately. Residents living along streams, creeks, low lying and flood prone areas should take immediate precautions to protect life and property. Do not attempt to cross swiftly flowing waters or waters of unknown depth by foot or by vehicle. Note, just one foot of flowing water is could be enough to sweep a car off the road. When encountering flooded roads be extremely cautious, and if in doubt, make the smart choice, turn around don&8217;t drown.

The interaction between a tropical wave and a surface trough is causing periodic heavy showers. Already, up to 3.5 inches of rain has fallen in some places in the last hour and another 3 or more inches is expected in the next 6 hours. Hence, moderate to major flooding of low lying and flood prone areas is expected.

Antigua and Barbuda meteorological services will continue to monitor the weather situation. Please stay tuned to local radio or television for warning updates.

  1. Since the “smart engineers” raised the level of Friar’s Hill and put in inadequate and poorly engineered drainage, plenty businesses got flooded.

    Is Bahama Hot Mess going to pay for damages now as well as those who took bribe money under the table to award the “winning bid” to BHMess? No but now the insurance companies will take a huge hit and we as usual will pay for higher premiums.

    Is this where I say thank you to the govt for this bullshit fiasco?

  2. Yes it is current and there are many many more.

    Antigua Met office did a piss poor job of preparing the country for this flash flood.. most advanced countries in the Caribbean have weather updates upon the hour and Antiguans have lost business, cars and home damages.. sand bags could have been purchased to help secure buildings and prevent flooding.

    Antiguans never stand up for anything in Antigua. They let everything slide and stay quiet. But they all up in America election and have it up in their chest for Trump but they have their own Trump in Antigua! His name is Gaston Brown
