Met Office dispels cyclone rumours
The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) is dispelling rumours being circulated on social media of another tropical cyclone to the south-east of the country.
In a statement, the Met Office said that Trinidad and Tobago is not under any tropical storm threat, watch or warning, and advises citizens to check the agency's website www.metoffice.gov.tt for the most accurate reports and up-to-date information.
"If there is any adverse weather that is a threat to our islands, the public will be informed by the TTMS in a timely manner."
"We would like to remind Citizens that we are not only in the hurricane season, but also in the rainy season and therefore we can expect rainy season features such as the ITCZ (Inter-tropical Convergence Zone) and tropical waves. These are features that regularly affect our islands every rainy season," the agency said.
In Thursday morning, a Met Office representative confirmed that an ITCZ and tropical wave to the south-east of the country could bring more rainy weather in a few days.
