Rain expected as trough system approaches Dominica

A trough system is expected to approach Dominica and will bring increased showers and cloudiness from late Friday into Friday night, according to the Dominica Meteorological Service.

“The high-pressure system will be interrupted later today as a low-level trough is expected to approach the area,” a report said. “This is expected to generate an increase in cloudiness and shower activity across the island chain by late afternoon into tonight.”

Persons in areas prone to flooding, landslides and falling rocks are advised to be vigilant and to exercise caution.

Moderate seas are expected during the next 24 to 48 hours with waves peaking near 8.0 feet.

Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise caution.

    Let us build the airport in pte Michele it has the perfect location , landing from the sea would be ideal, that was the original plan during the war, by the U.S core of engineers, but the war ended abruptly, after Hitler surrender ,or Woodford hill maybe, .

        u ARE CALLING PEOPLE FOOL but it seems that U are just that,
        The uwp bought the LAND to put a Jet airport and U all give the land back to those they bought it from
        Had they hold the land they would just build a landing strep and later build a Terminal building because all we need for the time being is a landing strep
        give that some thoughts ,

      When we have people worshipping a sinner, calling his God what do we expect. Listening to some Dominican calling Skerrit Lord God Almighty what fo we expect, using God’s name in vain, fooling and making people believe that he is hiving generously when he knows damn well that he is doing it for support to cover up his wicked evil ways what fo we expect, Dominica need Prayer, Dominica need Deliverance, until then, the worst is yet to come
