Caribbean 360 is reporting that heavy rains caused flooding in Trinidad leading to evacuations of several families. The author writes:
“The early morning rains were accompanied by lightning and thunder and many areas in Diego Martin and Petit Valley and surrounding areas were under several feet of water.
Chief executive officer at the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM), Dr. Stephen Ramroop told reporters several areas have been affected by floods.
‘It is not as bad as last year but, still water is …very high and the MP in the area reported to me that in one house the water is up to people’s head,’ he said.
At least two people were killed and several million dollars in damages were reported last year when floods caused widespread damage in West Trinidad.”
