⚠️Adverse Weather Alert #1 - Yellow Level
ℹ️A combination of the ITCZ and the presence of a low level trough continues to produce periods of moderate to heavy showers and periods of rain across both islands. While there may be a lull in the intensity of the activity at present, Trinidad and Tobago can expect further periods of precipitation over the next 6 to 12 hours. There is also the 60% chance of one or two heavy showers and the odd thunderstorm particularly during the predawn hours tomorrow Friday 27th November. This can result in localized street/flash flooding and gusty winds in some areas. There is also the possibility of landslides/landslips in areas so prone.

He reminded those present of the Prime Minister’s vision for the TTMPS saying, “This increasing complement of officers was a vision of the Honourable Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley and this Government and we can see it coming to fruition.

Keep abreast of warnings and updates from the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service (MET Office), Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management ODPMTT and other reputable sources for timely and accurate information.📰🗞

🔶𝗣𝗿𝗲𝗽𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗛𝗼𝗺𝗲: If you have time before severe weather hits, secure loose objects, close windows and doors, and move any valuable objects inside or under a sturdy structure. 🏠

🔶𝗘𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗰𝘆 𝗞𝗶𝘁:Your kit should include non-perishable food items and water, first aid supplies including medications, flashlight, batteries, hygiene supplies, battery operated radio, important documents and cash, clothing, cell phone chargers and a list of important numbers. 🧯🔦📻💊

Be Weather Ready!

#DisasterPreparedness Stay weather ready, be prepared for adverse weather!

1️⃣ Always stay informed! Tune in for regular weather updates from official channels such as Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service

2️⃣ Make sure your emergency kit is accessible to all members of the household. Your kit should include non-perishable food items, bottled water, medications and first aid supplies. 💊

3️⃣ Inspect your home, yard and surrounding areas for potential water blockages. Also, look out for leaks and cracks that may worsen or pose a threat in the event of heavy rainfall.

4️⃣ Plan an evacuation route (or two where possible) and take note of emergency services contact numbers and nearby emergency shelters. 🛣🚒🚔

5️⃣ Put away your important documents in a waterproof bag/container. Scan and save digital copies if you can. 📄📃📄

6️⃣ If you live in a flood prone area, prepare for the possibility of flooding. Tip: Sandbag walls are effective flood protection tools.

When will the PENAL/DEBE REGIONAL CORPORATION finish clean up the rubbish that was dumped throughout the La Romain EMBD development? When will the corporation approve and send a garbage truck to work in the development? The first issue was reported to the Corporation, the Councilor and the Municipal Police. All of which came and viewed the rubbish, promised that it will be removed and encouraged residents to report suspected dumpers. After the corporation 2nd clean up a PDRC garbage truck dumped a load of garbage, as well as other nasty citizens (dead animals, construction materials, landscaping refuse ect). All we asking the corporation PLEASE! remove the garbage. It is an health hazard. Every day the residents have to deal with the smell of garbage, dead animals, corbeau, flies as well as chasing people coming to dump. Constituents can't and refuse to live in dump like conditions. The second issue was brought to the attention of the councilor who then said that he will work on it. He assured that application was was made and will approved in the shortest possible time. That was since February. Six months later not a word. What is the issue the approval, how long we have to wait?
Dear Friends, The best of health to you. I wish to congratulate you on the excellent work that you are doing to alleviate suffering at these times. I believe that the Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government represents the executive arm of social justice and is a powerful vehicle to propel the country to first world status. As we know, there is a colossal stray dog crisis hurting our nation. These social animals are left open to abuse and horrific deaths as we are seeing repeatedly. The economic and mental and physical health implications embracing this problem are terrible. These include noise pollution, faecal contamination, and garbage spillage as well as traffic accidents. The sight of these unfortunate creatures can also heavily impact on ones psyche. The spread of rabies is also a definite threat. The World Health Organization estimates over fifty five thousand deaths each year from this incurable disease. Strays also serve as vectors for other pathogens. When we visit beaches, rivers and other recreational areas and even during leisurely drives, we see starving, abandoned and afflicted dogs. This is a local and international embarrassment and it presses for strategic and powerful governmental action. This issue burdens every citizen. This is very much a human dilemma that requires your immediate and proficient intervention. Without adequate shelters and infrastructure together with strong sterilization and adoption programs, we are headed for unquestionable disaster. I have spoken to several NGOs including the Animal Welfare Network and the Animals 360 Foundation. I learnt that a committee has been established to move the stray dog control bill forward but no progress has been made. This is a crucial part of legislation that is missing in order for the nation to move forward in view of a respectable state of Animal Welfare. Communications have been sent to Minister Kazim Hosein, but there has not been an appropriate response. Please give an update on this urgent situation. Thank you. Yours sincerely, Ravi Ramkissoon.
Good day Minister Hosein. Can you please organise with the TPRC to start cleaning the Bovell Canal that cuts across Marshall Trace. I have called them several times and they seem to be on permanent vacation.
Many senior citizens have not recieved their Old age pension cheque for December,2019 as yet. When will they get it ?
Happy mothersday
Wondered if this will be done in San Juan Laventille also. Their FB site doesn't allow uploads or new posts so I'm posting here.
