Fig Tree News TeamNEMA is advising of extreme weather and a potential flood alert, today through friday: up to 14 inches of rain may fall.

(Nassau, BAHAMAS) -- Residents throughout the archipelago should brace themselves for excessively prolonged rainfall throughout the day and lasting through Friday night.

A broad area of moist unstable air extending southwest to northeast from the Caribbean Sea will generate heavy rainfall and thunderstorms across the entire archipelago. Conditions will be favourable for flash flood warning in low-lying areas.

Winds are expected to reach 30 miles per hour or more in embedded thunderstorms. Tornadoes are likely to be spawned from the thunderstorms. A severe thunder storm watch or warning with the possibility of tornadoes will be issued when it is indicated by the weather radar or sighted by spotters.

The Department of Meteorology is appealing to residents in flood prone areas to be prepared to evacuate at a momentís notice. Residents are advised not to drive, walk or play in flood waters as the depth can easily be misjudged. All efforts should be made to protect lives and property.

All advice and notifications by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) should be heeded.
