Rough sea conditions continue across the Leeward Islands

A small craft advisory has been issued for Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands.

The small craft advisory joins a high surf advisory that was issued for the islands on Friday.

The Antigua and Barbuda Meteorological Services said a combination of wind waves and wind swells is causing hazardous seas.

“The threat level to the life, livelihood, property and infrastructure of mariners is moderate with the potential for significant impacts,” the Met Service said.

“Beachgoers, especially to the mainly affected coastlines, should be extremely cautious; bathe only where lifeguards are present or on the sheltered, less affected beaches, mainly to the south. Extreme caution is also required by those using the affected non-beach or rocky coastlines.”

The small craft advisory stays in effect for Montserrat and the British Virgin Islands until this evening and until Monday for the other islands.

The high surf advisory ends today for St Kitts and Nevis and Tuesday from the remaining islands.
