The bad weather over south Trinidad on Tuesday morning

Parts of south Trinidad are being battered at this time by flooding rainfall accompanied by damaging winds.

On Monday afternoon, the meteorological office at Piarco had forecast fair to partly cloudy with the isolated showers nearing dawn.

Today, the forecast was for initially fair with cloudiness increasing by mid-morning and accompanied by light to moderate showers in varying localities.

There was a high chance of the heavier shower and thunderstorm in Southern and Western areas of Trinidad.

Gusty winds and street flooding likely in the vicinity of heavier showers and thunderstorms.


Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has revamped the United National Congress (UNC) team, letting go ten current MPs and replacing them with new faces to contest the August 10 general election.

“Thank you very much and goodbye.”

This is essentially what outgoing D’Abadie/O’Meara MP Ancil Antoine was told by the People’s National Movement (PNM) leadership yesterday.

Antoine was summarily removed as the party’s candidate for the 2020 general election following his “insensitive and objectionable statements” at a campaign meeting on Saturday.

All police officers whose weapons were discharged during an incident that left three men dead in Morvant two Saturdays ago are to be placed on administrative duty.

The Express understands that this decision has been taken regarding “all” officers who would have fired their weapons during the encounter in which Morvant residents Noel Diamond, Israel Clinton and Joel Jacobs were killed.
