The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service is continuing the riverine flood alert for Trinidad. 
 
As opposed to street and flash flooding, riverine flooding is more prolonged and widespread.
It says data from the Water Resources Agency still indicates that water levels in a few of the nation's major rivers are high, however, these levels are anticipated to gradually decrease as no further rainfall activity is expected over the next 12 - 24 hours.
 
Water levels in the primary Caroni River have already begun to fall and with a low tide approaching at 7.36 am on Wednesday - this will facilitate a further decrease.
 
Citizens in general and those residing in the Caroni River Basin in particular are still asked to be on the alert and pay attention to river levels. 
 
All necessary measures must be taken to preserve life and property.
 
The Met Office strongly underscores that Trinidad and Tobago is not under any tropical storm threat, watch or warning at this time.
