Met Service: Swells affecting northward-facing near-shore areas


    Long period northerly swells are affecting the northward-facing near-shore areas of T&T, according to the Met Service.

    Today, it issued an update to its Hazardous Seas Alert which runs until 8pm tomorrow.

    It warns that large breaking waves and choppy sea conditions are expected to continue in near-shore zones.

    These effects can be amplified during high tide and the Met Office warns that sea bathers, fisherfolk and small craft operators should exercise caution.
