THE Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD) yesterday issued an early warning advisory especially for citizens residing in low-lying or flood-prone areas in the event of continuous showers expected to occur overnight across the country for the next few days which can eventually lead to flash floods.

In an advisory posted on the official BDMD Facebook page, the department said heavy thunderstorms during the night will occur until Saturday and the risk of flash floods will increase if heavy downpour is continuous.

It also said that wind speeds could reach up to 45 kilometres per hour during the heavy showers.
