River Levels Decreasing, Riverine Flood Alert Discontinued

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has discontinued the Riverine Flood Alert (Yellow Level) for Northern and Central Trinidad as river levels have been on the decline.

“River levels have been slowly decreasing and this trend is expected to continue. A few showers are expected later today, however, they are unlikely to be significant enough to raise the river levels again. As such, floodwaters in the vicinity of the Caroni river basin, are expected to gradually subside as the day progresses.” according to the TTMS.
