An increase in wind speeds over the long weekend is expected to result in rough seas, beginning December 31 and lasting until January 3.
The Trinidad and Tobago Inter-Island Transportation Company Ltd (TTIT) advised the travelling public of the adverse sea conditions in a release on Wednesday.
It added, “At this time, the respective vessel captains are monitoring the present situation to determine whether there should be any changes to the existing schedule.”
The Meteorological (Met) Office and the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) posted a short notice on their social media pages which said it is possible for wave heights to be between 2.5 and 3.2 metres (eight-10.5 feet) in open waters.
Although an alert has not yet been issued, the Met Office said those with marine interests should follow the situation closely. A representative of the Met Office told Newsday it would issue an update later on Wednesday and another on Thursday.
