Holetown Police Station flooded with mud, debris
A major clean-up operation took precedence over any other activities at the Holetown Police Station.
Cleaners from Sani-Services worked through the day clearing mud and debris left by flood waters which rushed into the station after the weekend’s heavy rains.
Deputy Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin accompanied by his deputy Bertie Hinds made separate tours of the station.
Afterwards, Stuart said the police station was located on one of the lower elevations of the island, and it was clear that water coming from the higher elevations affected the flooding there.
“Mercifully the police did a vertical evacuation of the police station”. he added.
