A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS FLASH FLOODING IS POSSIBLE.

Satellite and radar imagery indicated that light to moderate shower activity affected the island during the afternoon while moderate to heavy showers continued mainly over the waters of Dominica. Current projection is for rainfall amounts of between 2-3 inches or (50-75mm). The FLASH FLOOD WATCH has therefore been EXTENDED to 12pm Saturday June 1st.

People in areas that are prone to flooding, landslide and falling rocks should continue to exercise caution during the period. Those in areas which have been experiencing excessively dry conditions over the past months should be especially mindful of landslides and rockfalls.
