TTMS raises alert level to Orange


    The MET Service has raised the alert level to orange.

    Citizens are being prepared for an intense tropical wave which is likely to affect T&T between Sunday 22nd (6:00am) and Monday 23rd (8:00pm).

    It says an analysis of latest data has increased the certainty of impactful weather.

    On the risk matrix, a high certainty of severe impacts takes us to the orange level.

    Periods of heavy to intense showers and/or thunderstorms are likely.

    Heavy/intense downpours are expected to result in street/flash flooding.

    Gusty winds in excess of 65 km/hr can be expected.

    The risk of landslides/landslips is very high in areas so prone.

    Sea conditions are also likely to become occasionally rough.
