ADVERSE WEATHER ALERT DISCONTINUED FOR TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
 

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has discontinued the Adverse Weather Alert for Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday 19th June, 2019 at 4:47 p.m.

                                                                                                

Weather conditions have returned to Green Level. Green level means there is a low risk to public safety, livelihoods and property.

 

The TTMS has advised that for today until midnight, Trinidad and Tobago should expect partly cloudy to cloudy and breezy conditions with the sixty to eighty percent (60-80%) (medium to high) chance of showers. There is a forty percent (40%) (medium) chance of thunderstorm activity. Conditions would gradually settle by evening into the night despite a few overnight showers.

 

The ODPM wishes to remind all citizens to Get Ready and Stay Ready throughout the 2019 Wet/Hurricane Reason by implementing the following steps:

 

  1. Clear all drains around your property to allow water to flow freely;
  2. Clear debris from your gutters and downspouts;
  3. Pre-position sandbags around your property, especially if your area or property has a history of flooding;
  4. Keep all important personal documents, valuables and vital medical supplies in a waterproof bag or container in an accessible location;
  5. Build an emergency kit with enough food, water, and medical supplies for at least three (3) days;
  6. Prepare a family emergency plan;
  7. Keep a list of emergency telephone numbers on your refrigerator or anywhere that is easily accessible to everyone in your household;
  8. Learn the numbers of your corporation, especially the number of your Disaster Management Unit (see attached);
  9. Monitor weather conditions before leaving the house;
  10. Listen or look out for further updates on television, radio and social media.
