The National Panorama Single Pan Semi-Finals has been rescheduled to Sunday from Saturday evening owing to the bad weather affecting TT.

In a media release on Saturday morning, Pan Trinbago stated that due to the national alerts by the Prime Minister about a “weather emergency”, brought on by continuous rainfall, the central executive took the decision to postpone the event that was supposed to start at 4 pm at the Arima Velodrome. Pan Trinbago president Beverley Ramsey-Moore said, “A number of our bands have been calling in about their instruments getting wet, especially drums and drum sets. Many of our members have stated that they can’t leave where they are due to flooding. We have taken all that into consideration and have decided to reschedule the event until tomorrow (Sunday) at 4 pm. We have taken this decision as a measure of safety and care for our members.”
