Trinidad and Tobago regularly experiences natural hazards such as flooding (most common), earthquakes, landslides and a number of other meteorological and geophysical events. During these events, information on impassible roads, flooded areas and other real time information can be scarce.
TTWC now has several platforms for information to reach to your devices, but one that is frequently requested is on WhatsApp. We’ve created groups in which we disseminate important alerts which is utilized 24/7. Note that the information posted in these groups will be no different than the information posted on our website, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter feeds. The same information will always be posted in all groups, so there is no need to join more than one. Because WhatsApp limits its group size to 256, we urge you to only join one group.
Another important note is that this service only allows for administrators to post information. If you are wanting to submit your own photos, videos and information, feel free to contact the group administrators directly.
Lastly, a rule of the group, and a common courtesy: most users are on the group for getting information. Do not contact other members you do not know within the group privately, or you will be removed from the group and be banned.
Scroll to the bottom of the post for links to the groups. Note that these links may change from time to time and additional groups may appear depending on demand.
