TT under high wind alert

Trinidad and Tobago has been placed on a high wind alert, yellow level, which is set to come into effect at 8pm tonight.

Windy conditions are expected overnight and tomorrow, with the high potential (70% chance) for gusts in excess of 55km/h in the event of a heavy shower/thunderstorm.

Such wind gusts may be brief but capable of displacing poorly secured roofs, loose outdoor objects as well as breaking off tree branches. Wind waves occasionally can reach up to 2.5m in open waters and may become choppy in sheltered areas.

The Met Office has advised that citizens secure loose outdoor objects and livestock. Marine interests should also exercise caution during this period. Follow the instructions of lifeguards.
