    0

    The weather alert level has returned to green after days of inclement conditions.

    According to the Met Office, the threat of significant activity and accompanying impact has now decreased.

    However, it warns that heavy showers and thunderstorms remain in the forecast for the next several days.

    The rainfall of the past few days lead to flooding across T&T, particularly in South and Central Trinidad.
