Adverse Weather Alert Cancelled

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has cancelled the Adverse Weather Alert #1 – Green Level for today (Friday 28th September, 2018) at 3:29 p.m. Green level means no immediate action is required.

The TTMS has advised that conditions have settled over Trinidad and Tobago. However, it will take some time for flooding to subside in areas that were adversely affected. Additionally, persons should keep in mind that additional rainfall and thunderstorm activity is likely over the weekend.

All citizens (especially those in low-lying areas or landslip prone areas) are advised to remain vigilant and to continue to monitor weather conditions and watercourses.

The Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government field officers are currently conducting damage assessments in communities impacted by today’s adverse weather. Citizens in need of assistance are advised to contact their respective Municipal Corporation or the Tobago Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) through its toll-free hotline numbers.

Citizens can also learn more about how to prepare for this Hurricane Season by downloading the ODPM’s Hurricane Preparedness eGuide at www.odpm.gov.tt/hurricaneguide.

WE WISH TO UNDERSCORE THAT TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO IS NOT CURRENTLY UNDER ANY TROPICAL STORM OR HURRICANE THREAT, WATCH OR WARNING.
