Riverine flood alert number two – yellow level – has been issued.
The Meteorological Service says river levels along the Caroni River are currently above eighty percent.
With periods of heavy showers still likely over the next 24 hours, this additional rainfall can keep the river levels elevated, so there remains a moderate risk to public safety, livelihood and property.
Members of the public are asked to carefully monitor weather conditions and river/water levels.
Monitor updates from official sources and plan safety measures, including emergency supplies of food and water.
Do not take unnecessary risks and follow the instructions of government officials.
