Met Office Issues Orange Level Riverine Flood Alert

The Met Office says after continued rainfall activity, the river levels of the South Oropouche, as well as smaller tributaries in Southern areas of Trinidad, are near critical levels or overtopping in some areas.

In a statement earlier today the Met Office said additional periods of rainfall will likely continue over the next 24 hours, which will result in the further elevation of the river levels.

It noted that run-off will be slower at high tide on Tuesday.

The public is advised to follow the instructions of government officials and monitor official sources for information, including the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management for further updates.
