flood warningWeather Forecaster Marshall Alexander says a flood warning remains in effect for Dominica until 12 noon on Friday and there is a possibility that it could be extended further.

A Flood Warning means that flooding is already occurring or will occur during the warning period.

Alexander said most of the activities associated with the remnants of ‘Grace’ moved north east of Dominica last night but the island is still being affected by the system.

“Although we expect a relative improvement in conditions this morning, conditions remain unstable with high moisture level, therefore a flood warning is in effect until 12 noon today and could be further extended as we still expect some moderate to heavy showers during the afternoon and soils are saturated,” he stated.

He noted that rock falls have been reported because of showers across the island.

“We are advising residents to be vigilant and to continue to be safe…it is always better to be safe that sorry,” he advised.

Residents in Dominica in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks should continue to exercise caution, Alexander remarked.

Moderate sea conditions are expected during the next 12 to 24 hours with waves peaking near 8.0 feet and small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise caution.
