WEATHER UPDATE: Flash Flood Warning remains in effect for Dominica until 12 noon

A rain-cloaked Woodbridge Bay Port on Saturday morning

A Flash Flood Warning remains in effect for Dominica as unstable weather conditions continue to affect the island.

In its 6:00 am weather advisory issued today, Saturday November 10,  the Dominica Meteorological Service said lingering moisture and instability associated with a low level trough are expected to maintain cloudiness, showers and isolated thunderstorms across the island chain during the next 24 to 36 hours.

The Met Office stated that due to the saturated nature of the soil and the projection for additional rainfall, the FLASH FLOOD WARNING remains in effect for Dominica until 12 noon today. People in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks are advised to continue to be vigilant and to exercise extreme caution during the period.

Moderate seas are expected during the next 24 hours with waves peaking near 8.0ft. Small craft operators and sea bathers, particularly on the east coast, are advised to exercise caution.

    There is a dictator in the making on Dominica, soon Dominica will be like Haiti. It is half like that now, millions of dollars donated by the world community after Hurricane Maria is un-accounted for. It grew legs. The corruption is astounding. Enough money was donated to re-build every house on Dominica.

      Politics affects our daily lives. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the jobs we have, the schools, the roads and bridges, every aspect of our living is influenced by the political decisions or indecisions of those at the helm of government. Even though no one can prevent natural disasters, if those in authority were proactive, strategic and visionary, flooding, the loss of property and damages to the environment could have been greatly minimized.
      Dominica is suffering so severely from every heavy deluge because of rampant corruption, cluelessness and ultra selfishness by the current government.
      The citizens and residents have themselves to blame also because of their submissiveness, apathy and docility. They are too accepting of the lies and sub par performance of this myopic and propagandistic Skerrit-led regime.

    Say what all you want but less than a week after Skerrit told all his lies and coverups to the visiting Dominicans and his crowning of cronies with top awards, the heavens came down on us once again with point round baily bridge collapsing, landslides all over, flashflood warning and you name it. Skerrit you can lie as much as you want but your sins keep following you and exposing you. Just wait to see what will happen after you take Linton them to your court later this month. You think you are God but you will see who is the real judge.
