WEATHER ALERT: Rain and flood in Port-of-Spain

The rains are here and with it comes the promise of flooding in the capital city.

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Society (TTMS) said that hot and sunny conditions across the islands are currently being interrupted by passing showers. This activity will decrease later during the afternoon. Watch out for any gusty winds or rapid street flooding near thunderstorms. Tonight will be clear despite an odd overnight shower. Gusty winds, street and flash flooding may occur in heavy showers and thunderstorms.

The TTMS is also monitoring thunderstorm activity over the Western half of Trinidad (as well as off the southern and eastern coasts of the island) over the last two hours.
