The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has issued an Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) for a total of forty-one (41) hours. The Alert begins at 11pm tonight (Tuesday 21st December 2021) and will remain in effect until 4pm on Thursday (23rd December 2021). Trinidad and to a lesser extent, Tobago, is expected to be impacted.
According to the Met Office, there is a high (70%) potential for isolated moderate to heavy showers accompanied by gusty winds in excess of 55 Km/hr. Such wind gusts may be brief but are capable of displacing unsecured roofs and loose outdoor objects and can even topple over unhealthy trees.
Heavy downpours can lead to street flooding and localized ponding, especially in low lying areas. While Trinidad is expected to experience the majority of the rainfall activity and associated impacts, there is still the likelihood of Tobago experiencing isolated strong gusts in the vicinity of showers.
Citizens are advised to secure loose outdoor objects and livestock. Do not venture into floodwaters.
