The Hazardous Seas Alert Discontinuation
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has discontinued the Hazardous Seas Alert (Yellow Level) for Trinidad and Tobago as long period swells subside though seas in open waters remains agitated.
According to the TTMS, “Long-period swells are no longer having any adverse impacts on our near-shore areas. Based on official reports, the sea state is now moderate, with wave heights of 1.5m to 2.0m but occasionally up to 2.5m in open waters and below 1.0m in sheltered areas.“
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 green. This means that there is now a negligible impact on human safety and assets are basically undamaged, hence the hazardous seas alert was discontinued.
Still, the TTMS is advising all marine Interests should continue to carefully monitor sea conditions when venturing into any sea-related activities.
