ITCZ affecting weather conditions in Central/South Trinidad

Through its most recent Information Bulletin, the TT Meteorological Services has advised that the interaction of the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone will continue to affect weather conditions over the next 3 to 4 hours. In light of this, there is the strong possibility that areas of Central/South Trinidad will experience moderate to heavy showers with afternoon thundershowers. Street/flash flooding can also occur in areas that experience heavy downpour. Gusty winds are also likely.

The ODPM has already notified the key first responder agencies (TT Fire Service, TT Defence Force and the municipal corporations) so that immediate assistance can be rendered to areas that may experience heavy inundation. The ODPM reminds all citizens that if they have been adversely affected, they must contact their municipal corporation or 800 6376.

Consequently, we continue to underscore the following:-

  • After heavy rainfall, stay inside until water levels have subsided and it is safe to venture outside.
  • Do not walk / drive through flood waters.
  • Be cautious when walking /driving along hillsides or landslide prone areas.

Trinidad and Tobago is NOT currently under any Tropical Storm threat, Watch or Warning. The TT Meteorological Services is monitoring this weather condition and will advise the ODPM if there is a drastic change.
