As ITCZ interaction continues, more showers and thundershowers are expected today

Today, the TT Meteorological Service has advised that our weather will continue to be impacted by the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone. In light of this, various areas of Trinidad will continue to experience heavy rainfall and heavy showers coupled with thundershowers. Areas in the Eastern and Southern regions of Trinidad should exercise extra caution and vigilance at this time.

It is important to note that street/flash flooding, gusty winds and electrical discharges can also occur in areas that experience heavy downpour. Small river courses may become quickly inundated and therefore residents living in close vicinity to such rivers are asked to exercise caution. Landslips are also likely in areas so prone.

The ODPM remains in contact with all first responder agencies such as the TT Fire Service, TT Defence Force and the municipal corporations so that immediate assistance can be rendered to areas that may experience heavy inundation. Rivers courses are also being monitored at this time. 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.
