The Ministry of Works and Transport (MOWT) is urging motorists to be alert and attentive when driving or walking along routes in hilly areas due to heavy rainfall.

They are also asked to proceed with caution and to stay at home unless absolutely necessary.

Heavy rainfall across Trinidad and Tobago has resulted in widespread flooding, with several communities being adversely affected including Sangre Grande and St. Helena.

Part of the Uriah Butler Highway has also been closed due to flooding.

Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley, who is currently touring affected areas, has declared the situation a national disaster, noting that the flooding is widespread and severe.

Relief efforts are currently on underway.
