Rough seas warning from Met Office
SEA bathers and those involved in any other sea-related activities are asked to exercise extra caution in the coming days as there are currently rough conditions in the waters surrounding Trinidad and Tobago.
According to a media release issued yesterday by the Meteorological Service, this is as a result of an area of strong winds in the lower levels of the atmosphere.
In some instances, waves were as high as three metres, the release stated.
“Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models continue to forecast wave heights in excess of three metres at times. Seas will be rough, particularly along the exposed coasts of Trinidad and Tobago. Conditions may become aggravated during high tide,” the release continued.
“Citizens, especially those residing along coastal areas, are asked to be on the alert for above normal sea conditions. All necessary measures must be taken to preserve life and property.”
The release added that the winds are currently impacting the Southeastern Caribbean and agitating the surfaces of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.
“The exposed north and east coastline of Trinidad and Tobago will continue to be affected for at least the next 24 to 48 hours,” the release stated.
