No water for affected Port-of-Spain customers until 7pm, at best

The Water and Sewerage Authority says low pressures or no water supply to customers in parts of Port-of-Spain, is due to a broken 21-inch transmission main on Wrightson Road near the Diego Martin maxi-taxi stand.

A statement from WASA says emergency repairs are currently underway and is expected to be completed by 7pm tonight.

WASA says the areas to be affected include:

* Southern part of Port of Spain, including Wrightson Road, Independence Square, as far north as Duke Street;

* Morvant and Barataria
