Bad weather continues into Wednesday

The Yellow Level, Adverse Weather Alert issued by the TT Meteorological Office has been extended for the second time, until 12 PM on Wednesday. 

The Met Office forecasts that periods of rain and/or showers and isolated thunderstorms are likely to continue to affect Trinidad and Tobago, however most of the activity is expected during the early morning period.

They say that due to recent rainfall activity, "areas susceptible to landslips/landslides are at greater risk and the presence of strong low-level winds can result in gusts in excess of 55km/hr at times." They caution that the possibility for street or flash flooding still exists during periods of heavy downpours.

On Monday, parts of Central, specifically Chagauanas and environs experienced street and flash flooding with the 70.4 millimeters of rainfall. There were also power outages to some 20 communities across the nation. 

The Alert went into effect at 2 am on Monday morning.
