The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management indicates that latest reports from the Water Resources Agency reveals 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, it adds some low-lying areas in eastern Trinidad, specifically along the Manzanilla/Mayaro Road remain inundated as runoff is much slower.
Citizens in general and those residing in Manzanilla in particular, are asked to be vigilant in their activities and all necessary measures must be taken to preserve life and property.
O.D.P.M. Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Steven Ramroop, in a News Power Now interview on Tuesday afternoon said with more rainfall forecast, citizens must remain vigilant.
