Showers and isolated thundershowers expected throughout the day

Through its 9:45 a.m. Information Bulletin, the TT Meteorological Services has advised that there is the strong possibility that during the course of today, both islands will experience showers and the isolated thundershowers. This weather pattern is as a result of the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).

In addition to the expected heavy and intense rainfall, gusty winds, lightning strikes and street/flash flooding can also occur in areas that experience heavy downpour. River courses may become quickly inundated and landslides may occur also as a result of persistent downpour.

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:-

  • After heavy rainfall, stay inside until water levels have subsides
  • 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. Trinidad and Tobago is NOT currently under any Tropical Storm threat, Watch or Warning.
