The latest report from the Water Resources Agency and the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management indicate that water levels in the nation’s main river courses are on the decline and as such flood waters in the affected areas of several districts of Trinidad continue to subside.
However, some low-lying areas in eastern Trinidad, specifically along the Manzanilla/Mayaro Road remain inundated as runoff is much slower.
The MET office says ongoing runoff will continue to be slow in those areas still inundated; hence the Flood Alert is being continued for eastern Trinidad.
Citizens in general and those residing in Manzanilla in particular, are advised to be vigilant in their activities.
Assurance has been given that Trinidad and Tobago is not under any tropical storm, watch or warning at this time.
