I think this is has been going on now...off and on, for about two months...really unusual
Nation News "HIGH SURF and small craft advisories are in effect for Barbados for the next several days.
This warning has come from the Barbados Meteorological Services.
Northerly swells will affect the exposed northern, eastern and western coastlines of the island. These swells will cause breaking wave action that will render the surf zone unsafe, by generating strong dangerous rip currents.
Beachgoers, surfers and swimmers were therefore urged to remain onshore along the exposed coastlines until hazardous conditions subsided."
