On Sunday, Saint Lucia’s Department of Infrastructure, Ports, and Transport dispatched technical teams after receiving reports of land slippages and flooding in various areas.

Communications Officer in the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ports, Transport, Physical Development, and Urban Renewal, Miguel Fevrier, said that Senior Minister Stephenson King would issue a statement later.

Fevrier disclosed that technical teams are assessing the situation to take remedial action within the shortest possible time.

In the meantime, he said motorists and residents in areas prone to flooding and landslides are urged to exercise extreme caution as more rains are expected later in the day into Monday morning.

In addition to flooding and land slippages, the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) disclosed on Sunday that it had received reports of individuals trapped in their homes in the Assou Canal area.

NEMO’s Acting Director Maria Medard told St Lucia Times on Sunday afternoon that emergency responders were trying to assist in evacuating the distressed residents.

  1. St Lucia – the land of the clueless, incompetent, excuse making SLP politicians.
    They said Guy Joseph liked rain yet he kept rivers desilted and drains clean. You woud have thought that after a month of incessant rain the SLP mismanagers would have made it an urgent priority to keep rivers desilted. But no they are too busy travelling talking and taking. Are we stupid in St Lucia? Everytime they are in power the country declines then we vote for them again. What next my people? What next catastrophe to befall us?
    Now dozens of citizens flooded out of their homes , roads destroyed on top of the dilapidated road infrastructure, schools closed.
    And pierre’s only responce is that he is rushing King back from another overseas joyride to fill another pothole in their incompetence.
    Sigh!

  2. Finally these politicians are put to the task of updating the current infrastructure on the island…For years you almost have to beg these ministers or be a strong supporter of their camp for anything to get done…It’s like they were put in their positions for fame & fortune,for ppl to BEG them so they can feel high & mighty…Now the country crumbling before our eyes (guess it’s time for them to go with their hat in hand to BEG the Tawainese) or since their want to go with Green energy they can as the World Bank & the climate change crooks for help.

  3. What measures are the “BRAIN BOXES” of ST. LUCIA planning now? The infrastructure needs an overhaul. We keep hearing about new Hotels being built on the Island.

    What about (FLOOD BARRIERS and LAND SLIPPAGE re-inforcement BARRIERS. Deals should be made with the investors’ to build these life-saving and safety measures.
