Media Release: Continued Rainfall results in flooding across Trinidad and Tobago

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service stated in its earlier Information Bulletin that intermittent rainfall as well as infrequent showers would occur today due to the presence of a low level trough persisting over the Caribbean region.

Many areas, especially in the southern parts of Trinidad have been experiencing flooding due to this adverse weather. Some of these areas include:

  • Palo Seco
  • Woodland
  • La Romain
  • Penal
  • San Fernando
  • Siparia
  • Saltmine Trace
  • Mon Desir
  • Gonzalez Village, Guapo
  • Mosquito Creek

The ODPM, in its role as the coordinator of emergencies/crises has already alerted the first responder agencies so that assistance can be rendered to affected persons. The field officers from the Disaster Management Units of the Municipal Corporations and CEPEP have been assisting with clean up efforts.

The ODPM will continue to monitor the situation and update the public accordingly. Citizens are asked to remain vigilant and are reminded to contact 511 if they have been adversely affected.

The ODPM continues to remind citizens of the following:-

· Be extra vigilant and cautious at this time

· Elevate valuables and place important documents in sealed containers or bags

· Look out for collapsed pavements and fallen rocks

· Do not walk / drive through flood waters

 

We continue to underscore that Trinidad and Tobago is not under any Tropical Storm threat, watch or warning.
