The Department of Disaster Management (DDM) is calling on the community to follow official government advisories when it comes to inclement weather conditions.
latter department, created some concern for teachers at schools and parents whose children were at school with respect to the heavy rainfall that the island experienced on Wednesday.
The safest place for children to be is at school if there is inclement weather, especially when such a weather event occurs during school hours.
It would be very irresponsible for the government to alert parents to go pick up their children from school during heavy rainfall.
This creates an unsafe situation for children and parents as well as adds congestion to the road network.
The community is advised to follow official government advisories when these are issued.
DDM spoke with the Meteorological Service on Thursday at 4.00pm, and weather conditions will continue to improve throughout Wednesday evening.
For Thursday there should be some scattered showers, however conditions of heavy rainfall as experienced on Tuesday and Wednesday are not forecasted for Thursday.
