Ground ‘can’t take any more water’

Social Share

Judy Thomas, head of the Department of Emergency Management (DEM), says any more rain will cause problems for Barbados because the country is already badly saturated.
She says personnel from the department have been on the job since Sunday, noting that traditional areas are the ones flooded. These include some parts of the City like Chapman Lane, Westbury Road and Goodland. In St James the usually areas like Weston and Holetown are affected.
Thomas says there is also a lot of debris on the road but notes that after consultation with acting Prime Minister Freundel  Stuart they are trying to get the roads open.
The DEM director says even though there is a midday callout for workers, individual companies will have to determine if they will open at all today.
