Trapped by flood waters

Social Share

CHARMAINE ELLIS, of Trents Tenantry, St James, was among several frustrated and angry residents in the close-knit community trapped in their homes yesterday after a torrential downpour.Ellis, who is a diabetic, said she can never get in or out of her house when it rained because water surrounded the house. Furthermore, it takes about four days before the water runs off or evaporates.But Government’s Drainage Unit said residents would have to bear with this inconvenience for a while longer because it would take more than $1/2 million to rectify the situation.
