    0

    Parts of the Eastern Main Road in St Augustine turned into temporary rivers today, following brief but heavy showers.

    103FM News understands the stretch of roadway between Massy Foods and the UWI tunnel was inundated, however once the rains stopped, the water began to slowly recede.

    Flash floods were also reported in parts of Curepe, including Watt Street and Blackman Lane.

    103FM News spoke with Councillor J-Lynn Roopnarine, who says one small river is responsible for the floods.

    Ms Roopnarine says the river itself falls under the jurisdiction of the Works Ministry and is calling on the relevant authorities to address the problem.
