Riverine Flood Alert
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has issued a riverine flood alert as of 12:00 p.m today, as Trinidad and Tobago continues to be affected by the presence of alow level trough persisting over the Caribbean region. Reports from the Water ResourcesAgency indicate that water levels in the
nation’s major rivers in Central Trinidad are
significantly high and may reach threshold levels as a result of run-off from the currentand forecast rainfall activity.Meteorological Forecasts and data obtained from Numerical Weather Prediction Modelsindicate that further rainfall activity is expected over the
next 12 to 24 hours
with rainfallaccumulation anticipated to be between 25-40 millimeters.Given the additional rainfall predicted for Trinidad and Tobago and the occurrence of high tides at 6:35 pm. today, the possibility of river overtopping is real and imminent.As opposed to street/flash flooding, riverine flooding is more widespread and prolonged.Citizens in general, and those who live in the Caroni River Basin in particular, are askedto be on the alert for rising river levels and possible overspill. All necessary measuresMUST be taken to preserve life and property.The ODPM continues to monitor the situation and will update the public accordingly asfirst responder agencies provide assistance to those affected by the adverse weather.
