River levels receding; Flood Alert Discontinued


    Water levels along the Caroni and North Oropouche river basins are contained and continuing on a downward trend.

    The T&T Met Service say expected rainfall over the next 24 hours should not overwhelm these watercourses to cause over-spilling of their banks.

    As such it has discontinued both the Adverse Weather Alert and Riverine Flood Alert, taking it down to a Green Level.

    In its update at 3:30pm, the Met Service says the most impactful weather has dissipated and settled conditions are present over most areas.

    Variably cloudy conditions will however persist into the night-time with showers over few areas, with a low chance of thunderstorms.

    Despite this, persons are being advised to continue monitoring forecasts, as periods of heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible over the weekend.
