Heavy rain and thundershowers in North West, West, South Trinidad

The ODPM has received reports that a number of areas in North West, West and South Trinidad have experienced heavy rainfall over the last hour. These heavy rains coupled with gusty winds and thunder will cause flooding in a number of areas traditionally prone. Street/flash flooding is also likely in areas that experience heavy rainfall. River courses may quickly become inundated and landslides especially in the North-western areas of Trinidad and Northern areas of Tobago are also likely.

The ODPM, as the lead coordinator of crises and emergencies, has put ALL first responder agencies (TT Fire Service, TT Defence Force and the municipal corporations) on alert so that immediate assistance can be rendered.

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:-

  • Elevate valuables and place important documents in sealed containers or bags
  • Do not walk / drive through flood waters
  • Be cautious when walking / driving along hillsides or landslide prone areas

Citizens must make every effort to safeguard life, property, community and country.

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