A flash flood warning for low-lying and flood-prone areas of Antigua and Barbuda is valid until 5 PM today.

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 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’t drown.

A tropical wave continues to generate unsettled conditions over the area.

These conditions are forecast to continue for the rest of the afternoon before gradually decreasing into the evening.

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