CDC warns of heavy rainfall, flooding this weekend

The National Weather Watch Center has reported that moderate to heavy rainfall is expected this weekend from Friday April 9, 2021 to Sunday April 11, 2021.

According to the Civil Defense Commission (CDC), coastal areas should receive heavy rainfall especially in the early hours of the morning, with up to four inches of rain over a 24-hour period.

In addition, it was noted that high tides were predicted above normal and could lead to flooding in low lying, poorly drained and fluvial areas.

The CDC said there is also the possibility of landslides in hilly areas.

Residents are advised to take all necessary precautions, especially drivers and road users.

The Civil Defense Commission will provide more updates as they become available.
