Met Office: More long period swells along northern coastlines

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said long period swells will continue along Trinidad and Tobago's northern coastlines. 

In an update posted Monday afternoon, the Met Office said long period swells will continue but to a lesser degree.

These swells are forecast to continue affecting particularly northern coastlines for at least the next 72 hours. The general sea state is currently moderate.

The effects of these swells are in the form of large breaking waves along nearshore areas and will be more evident at high tide. Fisher folk and citizens, particular those residing along coastal areas, are asked to remain alert. All necessary measures MUST be taken to preserve life and property.

SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS AND ALL OTHER MARINE INTERESTS ARE ADVISED TO EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION IN ANY SEA RELATED ACTIVITY.

The Met Office said it is closely monitoring this swell event and will issue an update as the situation warrants.
