A Red Alert has been issued by the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (TTMS) due to the passage of Tropical Storm Karen.
This means the TT is at a very high risk and there is risk to public safety livelihood and property.
TTMS said periods of intense showers and/or thunderstorms were likely.
It said heavy intense downpours were expected to result in street or flash flooding.
“Gusty winds in excess off 70km/h can be expected. The risk of landslides/landslips is very high in areas so prone. Sea conditions are likely to become occasionally rough,” TTMS stated.
It is advising those affected to find a shelter if needed until the danger passes.
TTMS said, “Find a sturdy place and remain there. Turn off electrical breakers if your home is flooded. Do not go outside unless given the all clear. Only evacuate if your safety is threatened.”
