TT MET Office issues Flood Bulletin # 2

Flood Bulletin#2

Date: Sunday 28th of April 2013
ISSUED AT:06:25PM

FURTHER RAINFALL EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT 12 - 24
HOURS
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service
forecast further rainfall over the next 12 - 24
hours. Meteorological Forecasts and data obtained
from Numerical Weather Prediction Models indicate
that additional rainfall activity, with estimates
of between 15 - 25 millimeters of rainfall, is
expected over the stipulated time frame.

Although, water levels are approvingly receding,
the already swollen water courses can be easily
recharged to threshold levels with the added
rainfall and already saturated soils. The
occurrence of high tides at approximately 6:18am
tomorrow will compound any negative development
in this regard.
Given that some areas already experienced
inundation and the forecast conditions, the
riverine flood alert will be maintained
throughout the night.

Citizens in general and those who live in the
Caroni River Basin in particular are asked to be
on the alert for rising river levels and possible
overspill. All necessary measures MUST be taken to
preserve life and property.
WE STRONGLY UNDERSCORE THAT TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO
IS NOT UNDER ANY TROPICAL STORM THREAT, WATCH OR
WARNING AT THIS TIME.
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service is
closely monitoring weather conditions and will
issue another bulletin at 6:00 am tomorrow or
sooner if warranted.
