Hazardous Seas Alert, Yellow Level, In Effect Until Monday

A hazardous seas alert, yellow level, is in effect.

It is for the north-exposed and sheltered, nearshore coastal waters of Trinidad and Tobago.

The Meteorological Service says it will end at 12pm on Monday, December 19th.

It says long period, high energy swells have been producing large breakers in excess of 3 metres along near shore, north-exposed coastlines of Trinidad and Tobago.

Occasionally choppy conditions are also expected to continue in the Gulf of Paria with a short period of improvement over the weekend.

Conditions will be amplified during high tides.

Likely impacts include: higher than normal surf, dangerous conditions for swimming and for small craft operations near affected coastlines.

Sea bathers, fishermen, and small craft operators should assess sea conditions and avoid interacting with large breakers where possible.

The public is asked to exercise caution and follow the instructions of lifeguards.
