An active Tropical Wave is the main cause of the showers and thunderstorms currently affecting Antigua and Barbuda.

The Met Office says a flash flood advisory is in effect for minor flooding in low lying and flood prone areas of Antigua and Barbuda, valid until 4 pm today.

A flood advisory means that streams, creeks and drains may be elevated or even overflowing into streets, low lying and flood prone areas; however, property damage will be minimal.

Inconveniences can be expected but the flooding is not expected to be immediately life-threatening.

Moisture and instability left from the passage of a tropical wave persists over the leewards and BVI and will continue through this afternoon generating periods of heavy showers and it is likely that this advisory could be upgraded to a warning at short notice

Antigua and Barbuda meteorological services will continue to monitor the situation. please call 463-4638 for later statements. also, stay tuned to local radio and tv stations for the latest information.
