Adverse weather, flood alerts discontinued

Both the adverse weather alert and the riverine flood alert issued by the Meteorological Service (Met Office) over the weekend have been discontinued.

This, as conditions have settled over southern Trinidad.

The Met Office has said, however, that a few showers are still expected to linger into the night.

Flood waters have subsided over most areas of southern Trinidad, but there remain a few areas with standing water.

No further rainfall is expected that will contribute to further flooding, however, the Met Office is advising citizens to remain vigilant.

The Met Office has further advised citizens to assess their environment for safety concerns and avoid wading through residual flood water.

Citizens should continue to monitor official news sources.
