Downed tree damages Six Roads business

A ST PHILIP business man is counting his losses after a tree fell and damaged his shop in Six Roads, pulling down electricity lines in the area, leaving his and two other shops without electricity.

“Earlier in the year I told the landlord that the tree wanted cutting down because it was cracking from the middle,” said Ryan Jean-Baptiste. “He told me wait until later on because we were waiting on Town and Country Planning with some additional work to be done on businesses in the area.

“With the rains last night the tree came down and the entire shop moved. I can’t even get into the shop. My aquariums damaged, I lost fish.  I also have no electricity and there are live wires exposed.”

Jean-Baptiste said efforts to reach Barbados Light and Power have proved futile thus far.  (RA)
