Flood advisory!

DPI, Guyana, Monday, August 26, 2019

While the current weather gives way to the idea of heavy thunderstorms and intense rainfall, Chief Hydromet Officer, Dr. Garvin Cummings, has advised that there is currently no threat to Guyana as the storm will not occurr here.

“The storm is currently occurring in the eastern Caribbean and is nowhere near Guyana, it will be impacting Barbados and that is it, there is no need for an advisory.”

According to Dr. Cummings, we are however, currently experiencing high tide, and from all appearances, there may be intermittent showers throughout the night as a brush-off from the storm occurring in Barbados. As such persons should prepare for some light to moderate flooding, especially in low-lying areas.
