The airmass over our region is moist and unstable which is very conducive for the formation of active clouds over the island. These clouds are causing heavy showers accompanied by thunderstorms over the Western part of the island.
The public is advised to:
1. to remain in safe places and to avoid open areas, hikings, ventures at sea and not to shelter under trees during thunderstorms.
2. avoid places prone to water accumulation, river banks and other water courses which may be flooded and certain mountain slopes prone to landslide
3. be very cautious on the roads due to reduced visibility resulting from heavy rains and fog patches.
