Dr. Ramroop stated that the Local Government Authorities have been organizing relief to affected residents.
Several residents across Trinidad and particularly in the Southern Peninsula, experienced severe flooding as rivers burst its banks following heavy showers.
However some residents complained that they received no relief from the authorities.
Dr. Ramroop is advising those in need of assistance to call the ODPM’s hotline.
Meanwhile Tobago also had its share of harsh conditions resulting from the severe weather.
Director of the Tobago Emergency Management Agency Allan Stewart said the organisation received 20 incident reports.
Mr. Stewart said a team is currently on the field providing relief to afflicted residents.
