Met Office issues Adverse Weather Alert

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) has issued an Adverse Weather Alert #1 – Yellow Level for the period Friday 21st September, 2018 3:00 a.m. to Saturday 22nd September, 2018 6:00 p.m.
 
Yellow level means that there is the potential for negative impacts.

However, the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management says the damage can be avoided if persons monitor conditions and reduce their level of exposure.
 
The TTMS has advised that an active Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) is expected to produce heavy showers with thunderstorm activity. 

Gusty winds, street and flash flooding are likely in heavy downpours and landslips/landslides are possible in areas so prone.

Activity is initially expected to start near southern Trinidad, slowly progressing towards northern Trinidad.
 
Persons residing or working in flood prone or landslip prone areas are urged to be extra vigilant and to take the necessary steps to preserve life and property.
