In a press release issued this afternoon, according to Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (MET), “the winds in the low levels of the atmosphere have decreased slightly but remain relatively strong. As a result, there is still a high (70%) potential for winds to gusts in excess of 55km/hr, especially in the vicinity of showers/thunderstorms.

The MET also stated that “these winds gusts are capable of hurling loose/unsecured objects, causing tree branches to fall and even trees to fall over. Seas offshore as well as along exposed coastlines of both islands, will experience above-normal conditions.
