The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) is advising that the rumour that Trinidad and Tobago is currently under a Tropical Storm watch or warning is false.
In an advisory issued late Tuesday, the ODPM said the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service has not placed T&T under any Tropical Storm threat, watch or warning.
It is also advising citizens to ignore any WhatsApp messages circulating on this matter. Citizens are also asked to stop sharing WhatsApp voice note messages which may cause unnecessary concern and/or panic.
The ODPM added that citizens should obtain information only from official media networks, such as the Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service and the ODPM’s Facebook, Twitter and website.
