UPDATE: Flash flood watch discontinued

The flash flood watch issued on the British Virgin Islands today, November 8, has been discontinued.

The Department of Disaster Management (DDM) is, however, advising residents that there is still a high chance of showers.

The DDM reiterated: “With the soils in the territory already saturated, additional rainfall can cause ponding on roads, extreme hillside water run-off, increased mudslides and falling rocks.”

“Residents are urged to exercise caution while driving and pay close attention to undermined sections of roads. Do not attempt to drive in fast-moving water and caution should be exercised while driving across roads that are not visible due to flooding,” DDM added.

The territory was placed under flash flood watch by the Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Service.

      Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 9 Thumb down 8

      When we the people of the British Virgin Islands do as God says which is to REPENT!!! And give him the praise and glory and serve him with all our heart. Until we do that remember I told you lots more will come. God has been eating us and we fail not to listen. We are still living the same old life, doing the same old things, and God is telling us to repent but we still not listening. So my friend until the BVI repents all I can say is Lord have mercy on us. God is a jealous God and it’s not playing.

      This is the season for rain. Unfortunately we are unable to catch a break from both hurricanes. This type of weather is quite normal

        OK??? This is normal??? Ok then. Read your bible the book of Revelation and you will see. God is warning us. He is angry and he is eating us. We are not listening. People of the bvi please, please let us repent before God that’s all he ask of us. I can’t do it alone. God is not playing.
