MEDIA RELEASE- THE ODPM REFUTES SOCIAL MEDIA VOICE NOTE

MEDIA RELEASE

Wednesday 27th April, 2022                                                                                                             For Immediate Release

THE ODPM REFUTES SOCIAL MEDIA VOICE NOTE

The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) advises the public that it is aware of a voice note circulating on social media, purporting that this Office has extended the adverse weather alert until Monday or Tuesday. Please be advised that this voice note is false!

The ODPM does not issue weather alerts but instead, shares public warnings issued by the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) on our social media platforms. In this regard, the national community is informed that the TTMS has discontinued Adverse Weather Alert #2. Therefore, the public is advised to disregard the false voice note and refrain from sharing this misleading information. Thank you.
