Adverse Weather Alert Discontinued. Flood Waters Continue To Rise

Adverse Weather Alert Discontinued

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has discontinued the Adverse Weather Alert (Yellow Level) for Trinidad and Tobago, according to the TTMS, the threat of significant impactful weather has substantially decreased.

According to the TTMS, “Adverse weather conditions associated with the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), have diminished and settled conditions are expected to continue. There are, however, some areas still affected by floodwaters (refer to Riverine Flood Alert #2 – ORANGE LEVEL).

Trinidad and Tobago is NOT under any tropical storm threat, watch or warning.

The color of the alert indicates the severity of the event and the probability of the event occurring. Currently, the alert level is at Green, as the discontinuation was issued but the certainty is unlikely, which may be an error from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service.

At this level, there is negligible impact on human safety, assets are basically undamaged and income earning potential is unaffected. However, for the current alert level, moderate impacts are still possible. There is the potential for possible injuries, where behavioral changes are required to ensure safety. There may be minor damage to property, with income-earning temporarily disrupted and a couple of communities are affected.

The Met Office is advising the public to assess your environment for safety concerns, don’t take unnecessary risks, remain vigilant, and continue to monitor official sources for information.
