Five disaster districts in Antigua and Barbuda that are known for flooding will benefit from activities aimed at enhancing how residents prepare and respond to flood events.

The areas – St Mary’s North, St. Mary’s South, St. John’s Rural West, St John’s City East and St John’s Rural North, were selected based on the amount of work that has been ongoing like the improvement of bridges, roads and culverts to help reduce flooding.

On Tuesday 10th May 2022, a team from the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) assisted by the National Office of Disaster Services (NODS) and the Met Office, brought together representatives from the communities, the Department of Environment, the Fire Department and the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) in a workshop at the Antigua and Barbuda Hospitality Training Institute.
