The Met Office has discontinued its riverine flood alert Trinidad. A release from the Met Office said that although some areas are still inundated, reports from the Water Resources Agency and Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) indicate that water levels in the nation’s major rivers are slowly decreasing.

Although showery activity has decreased somewhat, a Tropical Wave is expected to bring more rainfall within the next 36 to 48 hours, the Met Office advised. Citizens are asked to continue being vigilant especially in flood prone areas as all necessary measures must be taken to preserve life and property, as street and/or flash flooding are possible in the event of heavy showers and thundershowers.

The possibility of landslides/landslips still exists in areas so prone. The Met Office stated that TT is not under any tropical storm threat, watch of warning at this time.

The Met Office said it will continue to closely monitoring weather situation and will issue another bulletin if the situation warrants.
