Warnings for both Trinidad and Tobago downgraded

The Trinidad & Tobago Meteorological Service has downgraded the Hurricane Warning for Tobago to a Tropical Storm Warning. Meanwhile, Trinidad’s Tropical Storm Warning has been discontinued and is now an Orange Level Adverse Weather Alert.

As Hurricane Beryl moves away from the twin isles, the TTMS warns that there must still be caution in actions. In the release, the TTMS stated that for Tobago, “the possibility of impacts from tropical storm force winds still exists. Periods of showers and extended periods of rain are expected.”

With regard to Trinidad, the release stated that “there remains a high chance (70%) of periods of rainfall of varying intensities with isolated thunderstorms. Gusty winds near 55 km/h may accompany heavier downpours. Street flooding is likely during heavier rainfall and landslides/landslips are probable in areas so prone. ”

The TTMS also added that battering waves have been observed and hazardous seas are expected to persist for both islands.
