The Met office issues high wind and small craft warning for Barbados

admin

The Barbados Meteorological Office has issued a high wind and small craft warning for the island, which takes effect tomorrow at 6 a.m. until Monday, June 25 at 6 p.m.

The Met office says the island is likely to experience wind speeds of 25 to 33 knots and possibility higher gusts due to a strengthening Atlantic high pressure system that will generate low level winds across Barbados and the Lesser Antilles starting from tonight.

The forecasters warn that winds of this magnitude can cause loose objects to become airbourne, may topple over garbage cans, outdoor furniture, jumping tents, construction material and cause tree branches to fall.

Therefore, they are urging residents to be vigilant and secure all loose objects.

A  small craft warning will also be in effect until 6 p.m., Monday, June 25.
