Some areas in North West Trinidad affected by flooding

A number of areas in North Western Trinidad experienced flooding. These areas are:


  • Petit Valley (Appleblossom Avenue/ Morne Coco Road)
  • Diego Martin (Vanderpool Lane/ Waterwheel Drive)
  • Maraval (La Seiva)
  • Port of Spain (Ariapita Avenue West/ Princess Elizabeth Home)

The ODPM CEO, Dr Stephen Ramroop along with other ODPM team members, visited the Princess Elizabeth Home in order to assess and supervise relief efforts. With the assistance of the Trinidad and Tobago Fire Service and the Trinidad and Tobago Red Cross, the children have been removed from the flooded rooms and quarters and are being housed in the school area of the Home. Clean up is underway at this time. Arrangements are being made to have meals and other urgently needed items, provided to the home.

Officials from the Disaster Management Units of the Port of Spain City Corporation and the Diego Martin Regional Corporation visited some of the affected areas to conduct an assessment of the damage to provide any additional assistance and relief that may be needed.

We remind all citizens that if they have been affected by flooding, they must contact their municipal corporation or the ODPM at 800 6376. Additionally, the Hurricane season has begun and as a result, we remind citizens to continue to take the necessary measures to safeguard life and property.
