Heavy rains lead to flooding

Areas badly affected included St Augustine, Arima, Santa Cruz, Mt Lambert, Tunapuna and several parts of central Trinidad.

The showers — the result of an Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) — led to swollen river courses and a forecast for further rainfall, according to a bulletin issued on the TT Meteorological Office’s website.

The Met Office said flooding will intensify in areas in close proximity to river courses, and urged citizens to be on the alert for rising river waters and possible overspill. It said all necessary measures must be taken to preserve life and property.

The Met Office said, however, that the country was not under any tropical storm threat, warning or watch.
