    0

    A Yellow Level Riverine Flood Alert is in effect for T&T, and will remain in effect until 6pm tomorrow (Sunday 9th August).

    According to the MET Service, river levels are currently near threshold values in some parts, especially along the Caroni River basin.

    Flooding is ongoing in certain regions as well.

    A high tide is expected near 7:15 pm tonight, and this could impede runoff.

    Also, with some rainfall anticipated overnight tonight, any additional accumulations may exacerbate the river levels.

    As such, it says there is a moderate risk to public safety, livelihoods and property exists in these areas.

    Some additional rainfall is expected after midnight tonight and into the early parts of the morning.

    This will include occasional heavy showers and thunderstorm activity in a few areas, both in Trinidad and Tobago.

    Gusty winds in excess of 50 km/h and street or flash flooding are likely in the vicinity of heavy showers and thunderstorms.

    Conditions are expected to become settled during the afternoon tomorrow.
