Rainfall causes flooding in parts of Port of Spain

Social media has been abuzz with scepticism after the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service issued a weather alert cautioning the public about inclement weather which was expected to affect the country after midday on Friday.

However, shortly after naysayers began expressing doubt about the prediction, heavy rainfall pounded South Trinidad before making its way to the capital city.

A few hours of rainfall led to flooding along Tragarete Road near the Queen’s Park Oval, along Cipriani Blvd, South Quay, Port of Spain and environs.
