Met Service discontinues Riverine Flood Alert 

The River­ine Flood Alert/YEL­LOW Lev­el which has been in ef­fect for wa­ter­ways and low-ly­ing ar­eas in Trinidad over the past cou­ple of days has been dis­con­tin­ued, with the alert sta­tus mov­ing to GREEN.

The lat­est ad­vi­so­ry from the Trinidad and Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Ser­vice (TTMS) re­ports:

“The South Oropouche Riv­er is now con­tained at this time and the threat of fur­ther river­ine flood­ing has de­creased con­sid­er­ably. Some lo­ca­tions re­main wa­ter­logged, but this will im­prove grad­u­al­ly. How­ev­er, iso­lat­ed show­ers this af­ter­noon may slow this process.”

Notwith­stand­ing the down­grad­ed alert sta­tus, the Met Ser­vice is en­cour­ag­ing the pub­lic to con­tin­ue mon­i­tor­ing weath­er con­di­tions and riv­er/wa­ter lev­els and to avoid tak­ing un­nec­es­sary risks.
