THE Department of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning for Grand Bahama after lightning and waterspouts appeared in Freeport on Tuesday.
Forecaster Neil Armstrong advised people to remain indoors and stay away from windows. The department also advised people not to go into the water and harbour personnel should be particularly careful while at marinas protect to their vessels.
Strong lightning strikes were seen throughout the day. A cell phone video was sent to The Tribune, showing a waterspout that was spotted near a food store on Queen’s Highway in Grand Bahama.
“There are some possible further waterspouts and some possible tornado warnings due to a frontal boundary pushing into northwest Bahamas,” Mr Armstrong said.
The current weather warning was issued at 4.30pm and will last until 8pm on Tuesday, after which other updates may follow.
