The Public Works Department has been monitoring hillsides and roadways, and also addressing areas affected by rock fall, said the government’s Department of Disaster Management (DDM).

It added, “Due to the inclement weather, motorists are being advised to exercise extreme caution and be mindful of rocks which may have fallen onto the roads.”

The DDM noted that the territory is being affected by unstable weather conditions (rain, thunderstorms and lightening) generated by a persistent trough.

The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services, in its latest forecast, indicated that skies will be cloudy with scattered showers today and tonight, and isolated thunderstorms could also continue.

The forecast also states that winds are east-south-east to south-east (ESE-SE) at 6 to 12 knots, and the sea conditions are moderate with 5 feet waves. Atmospheric pressure is below normal.
