Citizens are being asked to observe caution while at the nation's beaches this weekend. The call comes from the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) following an advisory from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Office. 

According to the release from the ODPM disturbances in the Northern Atlantic Ocean are currently affecting the coastlines of both Trinidad and Tobago and these disturbances are expected to continue to cause increased wave length and higher than normal waves and swells.

Based on the data provided by the Met Office the ODPM is asking citizens, particularly those residing in coastal areas, fisher-folk, small craft operators, sea bathers and all other marine interests to be on alert and exercise caution when on the nation's beaches.

Tobago will experience the effect of the disturbances in the Atlantic earlier than Trinidad and conditions in both islands will worsen during high tide.
