Trinidad and Tobago: Following the adverse weather condition, Trinidad and Tobago issued a weather advisory that a cluster of thunderstorms seems to be just approaching the country. 

According to Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service, the yellow level is in effect from Friday September 3 12 am to 2 pm. There are reports of high winds, fallen trees and downed poles.

“Please remember that the Disaster Management Unit at your local Regional Corporation is your first responder.” 

People are advised to do all that they can to secure loose items (bicycles, plant pots, furniture etc). If you’ve lost power, be mindful of those candles and keep your keys nearby, and your exit route clear.  Don’t try to drive through floodwaters (and please don’t swim in them either). 

Stay as safe as possible, and look out for your family and friends, and your pets too.

The government has issued hotline numbers in case of any emergency for all City, Borough and Regional Corporations.

There is a high potential for moderate to heavy sowers and isolated thunderstorms to affect both Trinidad and Tobago and other nearby areas since morning. Advisory stated that the affects will begin from Tobago and eventually each Trinidad. Flash flooding, localised ponding, landslides and gusty winds in excess of 55 kilometres are likely to impact the country with heavy rain showers or thunderstorms.
