Riverine flood alert in effect

After Sunday’s rainfall activity, major river levels in Southern areas of Trinidad are near or above 90%.

The Met Office says smaller watercourses are at critical levels and overtopping has been observed in isolated areas (based on official reports).

Intermittent periods of rainfall will likely continue over the next 12-18 hours, which will result in the further elevation of the river levels. Note that run-off will be slower at high tide which will be at 11:02pm (Sun. 11th) and 11:40am (Mon 12th).
