The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has extended its Riverine Flood Alert (Yellow Level) by twenty-four (24) hours. The Alert now remains in effect until 8:00 PM on Thursday (24th November 2022) for the Caroni River Basin and its tributaries and the North Oropouche River.
The Met Office has also extended its Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) until 8:00 PM on Thursday.
According to the Met Office, after today's rainfall event, river levels along the Caroni and North Oropouche Rivers continue to rise and are currently above 80%, with El Carmen being at a critical level of 93%. Weather conditions are expected to settle during the night, however, occasional intervals of heavy showers are still likely thereafter. This additional rainfall can keep the river levels elevated, so there remains a moderate risk to public safety, livelihood and property.
Citizens are advised to carefully monitor weather conditions and river/water levels. Monitor updates from official sources and plan safety measures, including emergency supplies of food and water. Do not take unnecessary risks. Follow the instructions of Government Officials.
