The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) is advising citizens to be vigilant of the 24 hour period of inclement weather as indicated in Trinidad and Tobago’s Meteorological Service’s last Information bulletin issued at 7:30pm.

Incidents of localized street or flash flooding due to heavy or prolonged downpours and gusty winds, landslides/landslips in elevated areas or impacted areas can be expected post the inclement weather pattern.

Therefore, citizens are advised to be vigilant and cautious as they conduct their activities, particularly commuters on our roadways as the road is wet. Persons are asked to pay special attention to TT Meteorological Service’s latest information bulletins at this time.

Consequently, we continue to underscore the following:-
· After heavy rainfall, stay inside until water levels subside and venture outside only when it is confirmed safe.
· Do not walk / drive through flood waters.
· Be cautious and vigilant when walking /driving along hillsides or landslide prone areas.

Trinidad and Tobago is NOT currently under any Tropical Storm threat, Watch or Warning. The TT Meteorological Service is monitoring this weather situation and will advise the ODPM if the situation warrants.
