A Beach house destroyed by the force of the flood waters that swept over the Manzanilla/Mayaro Road in Trinidad & Tobago

Over the last two weeks Trinidad, Guyana and Barbados suffered floods caused by unprecedented rainfall. As expected the opposition in Guyana politicized the issue and was critical of the government’s $500M countrywide clean-up exercise. No mention is being made however, of the magnitude of rainfall and the fact that Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago both had similar experiences during the same period despite being better equipped with drainage facilities. What is also being neglected is the speed at which accumulated water drained when compared to previous instances.

This can be gleaned from two significant developments during the weekend; one being Republic Bank’s announcement of a whopping $2.33B in after tax profit for the 2014 financial year and the other being the commissioning of a $200M branch by Citizens Bank at New Amsterdam.

An excavator removing debris from the Sussex Street Canal on Friday.

(Guyana Times)Acting Town Clerk Carol Sooba has slammed “deeply politically aligned” managers at City Council for not enforcing anti-litter laws to combat the indiscriminate disposal of refuse. Speaking with Guyana Times on Saturday, Sooba said enforcement of the regulations is outside of her jurisdiction. The acting Town Clerk’s response comes amid frustration of the slow drainage of water accumulated during recent heavy downpours. “We are cleaning this canal now and you will see, in a short while it will be dirty again, they just keep dumping garbage.”
