Floods inundate Trinidad for another day

    Flooding in Suchit Trace on Nov 29, 2022

    An MP says ongoing flooding in Bamboo #2 could have been avoided if government listened to the pleas of residents.

    St Augustine MP Khadijah Ameen says the floods have reached neck-height in some cases and have forced people to abandon their homes.

    She laments that the issues behind the ongoing incident have been raised on more than one occasion with government.

    MP Ameen says requests have been made with the TTPS and Coast Guard to patrol the area to protect people’s homes from the threat of vandals and thieves.

    Also speaking to 103.1FM News, Mayaro MP Rushton Paray says while water has subsided in some areas, there is an issue in the Mafeking community.

    MP Paray also gave an update on the damaged, impassable section of the Manzanilla/Mayaro Road.

    Meanwhile, Councillor for St Augustine South/Piarco/St. Helena, Richard Rampersad, explains that waters have been subsiding significantly in communities within his district.

    Also among the impacted areas is the Couva/Tabaquite/Talparo region, but the Corporation Chairman Henry Awong says landslides have done significant damage, especially in Gran Couva.

    In Penal/Debe, Corporation Chairman Dr Allen Sammy is optimistic about the region’s situation in the coming day.
