Shelter activated in Beetham Gardens


    The Beetham Community Centre has been activated as a shelter.

    According to Local Government Minister Kazim Hosein, other shelters will also be opened, once the need arises.

    He gave this update during a media conference this afternoon.

    The Minister says a number of fallen trees and landslides have also been reported, and are being addressed once conditions allow.

    Meanwhile National Security Minister Stuart Young is urging persons NOT to venture into flood waters, even in vehicles.

    He expressed concern with the number of videos that were apparently shot while out during flooding today.

    He also revealed that the Fire Service had to be called in to rescue persons who were stranded in Mount Lambert today.
