Heavy and intense afternoon showers and thundershowers expected

Through its 11:30 a.m. Information Bulletin, the TT Meteorological Services has advised that there is the strong possibility that this afternoon, both islands will experience afternoon showers and thundershowers. These showers are expected to be heavy and intense and will initially occur in the eastern parts of Trinidad and then eventually favour other areas.

In addition to the rainfall, gusty winds and street/flash flooding can also occur in areas that experience heavy rainfall.

The ODPM, as the lead coordinator of emergency management, has put the first responder agencies (TT Fire Service, TT Defence Force and the municipal corporations) on alert so that immediate assistance can be rendered if any adverse impact occurs. The ODPM reminds all citizens that if they have been affected by this inclement weather, they must contact their municipal corporation or 800 6376.

We continue to underscore the following:-

  • Continue to be extra vigilant and cautious during this season
  • Elevate valuables and place important documents in sealed containers or bags
  • Secure items around your home that can become missiles during strong winds
  • Do not walk / drive through flood waters
  • Be cautious when walking / driving along hillsides or landslide prone areas

Trinidad and Tobago is still actively in the hurricane season; therefore citizens must continue to plan and prepare in order to safeguard life, property, community and country. It is only through planning and preparing that we can minimise the impact of any hazard.

Trinidad and Tobago is NOT currently under any Tropical Storm threat, Watch or Warning.
