Hazardous Seas Alert in effect tomorrow


    Starting tomorrow, a Yellow Level Hazardous Seas Alert will be in effect for parts of Trinidad and Tobago.

    It will be in effect for one week: from 11am on Sunday 27th October, to 2pm on Saturday 2nd November.

    The MET Service says long-period north-easterly swells are forecast to affect nearshore activity in northern, sheltered and to a lesser extent, eastern coastal areas.

    Effects will usually be in the form of occasional battering waves, which can lead to disruption to sea bathing and other nearshore coastal activities.

    In some cases, mild coastal flooding and damage/erosion is also possible.

    Spring tides are also in effect, which will enhance near-shore impacts during high tides.

    Sea bathers, fishermen, and small craft operators are urged to monitor nearshore coastal sea conditions and exercise caution along affected areas.

    Persons should also be alert for dangerous breaking waves and currents, and to follow the instructions of lifeguards.
