    Up to 2000 homes may have been affected by recent floods in the Penal-Debe area.

    Clean-up exercises are continuing in that and other areas, in which flood waters persisted for days.

    103FM News spoke with Chairman of the Penal Debe Regional Corporation Dr Allen Sammy.

    Regarding damage assessments, Dr Sammy says the number of affected homes is expected to rise as officials visit more communities.

    Dr Sammy was also critical of the Works Ministry, and what he says was its failure to properly clean drains.
