Flooding in Central, Trinidad

The Met Service at Piarco says inclement weather conditions continue to affect the country.

It adds that over the past few hours, Trinidad and to a lesser extent Tobago, have been experiencing cloudy to overcast conditions with periods of rain and showers, some of which have been moderate to heavy in intensity.

The MET office further explains that this rainfall activity is due to a moist and unstable environment associated with the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ).

An information bulletin this afternoon said cloudy to overcast conditions with periods of rain and/or showers some of which may be heavy and thundery are forecast for the next 6 to 8 hours.

Gusty winds will accompany moderate, occasionally heavy rainfall and the possibility of landslides/ landslips is real, particularly in northern and northeastern areas of Tobago and elevated areas of Trinidad.

Given the current and expected conditions, citizens are advised to be vigilant and cautious as they conduct their activities.

The Met Service says  Trinidad and Tobago is not under any Tropical Storm, Watch or Warning.
