The Chairman of the Tunapuna/Piarco Regional Corporation is not aware of any plans to distribute sandbags to residents at this time.
This statement from Mr Paul Leacock comes despite the Met Service warning that the Caroni River is at maximum capacity.
The river, it says, has overflowed onto its banks into low-lying, surrounding areas.
Mr Leacock says the corporation is monitoring the situation.
