Swamped by flood waters

Social Share

It was like a scene from a burst dam yesterday, when flood waters rose to extremely high levels at Enterprise in Christ Church after two consecutive days of rainfall.
Rain drenched the southern part of the country, as the island continued to be affected by a lower level trough which had interacted with the inter-tropical convergence zone.
Many residents in Christ Church districts were forced to seek rescue from the Department of Emergency Management, and the Barbados Fire Service, after being trapped inside their homes.
At Garners Drive, Enterprise, water in that area rose to almost five feet high, and even one of the Roving Response vehicles had to seek help when it ran into difficulty in the deep waters.
Other areas severely affected were Durants, Graeme Hall Park, Lowlands and the Maxwell Coast Roads.
