Guadeloupe Extends Yellow Alert for Heavy Rain and Thunderstorms Until April 22

Guadeloupe has extended a yellow alert for heavy rain and thunderstorms until Monday, April 22, 2024. The alert was issued due to the forecast of heavy rainfall and thunderstorms in the region over the coming days.

Authorities are warning residents to be vigilant and take necessary precautions, as the heavy rain and storms could lead to flooding in vulnerable areas. Sensitive zones are particularly at risk of inundation from the expected downpours.

Why this matters: The extension of the yellow alert highlights the ongoing threat of severe weather in Guadeloupe. Flooding from heavy rains can pose significant risks to public safety and cause damage to infrastructure in affected areas.

"We urge the public to exercise caution and avoid unnecessary travel in areas prone to flooding," said a spokesperson for the prefecture.
