Heavy rains associated with a
tropical low-pressure weather system could bring flooding to low-lying areas of
Grand Cayman between Monday and Tuesday evenings.
The weather system, which was
dubbed Invest 92L last week because it had the potential to develop into a
tropical cyclone, is expected to pass to the south of Grand Cayman early
Tuesday. It will bring an estimated two inches of rain to the Cayman
Islands, along with windy conditions and moderate seas of 3 to 5 feet.
Higher gusts and rough seas are expected in an around the heavier showers
associated with the weather system.
Hazard Management Cayman Islands
issued a press release Monday morning warning of flooding in low-lying areas as
a result of the heavy rains.
“Roads, homes, businesses and
parking lots may be affected,” Hazard Management stated. “Residents in
low-lying areas need to take precautionary measures if they live in areas with
a history of flooding.”
The press release advised residents
to avoid driving on flooded roads.
“If you have to drive through flood
water, drive very slowly,” it stated.
Hazard Management said there were
no plans to open storm shelters, but it advised residents to monitor the media
for further announcements.
