Stranded in Tobago by approaching storm

SCARBOROUGH – There was chaos at the ANR Robinson International Airport, Tobago on Monday as people who travelled from Trinidad to spend the long weekend, attempted to get off the island before the approaching storm.

However, hundreds are expected to be stuck in Tobago because a decision has been taken by Caribbean Airlines to cancel all flights after 1.25p.m Monday.

At least six flights were scheduled to arrive and depart the island on Monday afternoon.

Passengers trying to get out of Tobago are being told all remaining fights have been cancelled.

Express multimedia reporter Susan Mohammed, who was among those at the airport, was able to leave the island on one of the last flights out.

Mohammed said that although the cancellations were announced, some passengers remained at the airport, trying to find a way out.

Others had begun making arrangements with guest houses and hotels to stay on for at least another night.

CAL has also announced the cancellations of flights to several Caribbean islands, Miami and New York.
