    River levels are currently near threshold values in some parts, especially along the Caroni River basin.

    The T&T Met Service has reported that additional rainfall is expected overnight tonight and tomorrow, Saturday 05th June 2021, which will further elevate river levels.

    There is a moderate risk to public safety, livelihoods and property as watercourses may overtop their banks.

    As such the TTMS has issued a Yellow Level Riverine Flood Alert for the period starting at 8pm on Friday June 4th to 12pm on Sunday June 6th.

    The Met Service is advising persons, especially those living in low lying areas near water courses in central and northern Trinidad, to monitor weather conditions and river levels before venturing outside.

    Also, persons should monitor updates from official sources and plan safety measures, including emergency supplies of food and water.
