Residents ‘sure’ it was a cyclone

Social Share

SOME RESIDENTS AT Providence in Christ Church are convinced that a “cyclone” was responsible for the devastating damage to houses and a church in that community yesterday.

About ten houses and an annex to the 185-year-old Providence Methodist Church, where Sunday School and other functions are held, sustained structural damage during the passage of Tropical Storm Harvey in the wee hours of yesterday morning.

The entire roof of the church’s annex collapsed, two houses were destroyed and others suffered damage particularly to their roofs.

What residents found amazing was how galvanized sheets from the church blew over 300 yards away causing damage to power lines and some houses. (MB)
