Heavy rainfall has impacted several communities in Saint Lucia, prompting the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) to urge citizens to remain vigilant.

NEMO Director, Dorine Gustave, said the organisation was Monday afternoon still receiving reports in relation to the trough that impacted the Island late Sunday into Monday morning.

But she revealed that initial reports indicate that the community of Dennery has been severely impacted, especially the Dennery village and Dennery South.

“Micoud has been impacted by flooding,” Gustave noted.

She also said reports of flooding have come from Laborie, and there are reports of landslides throughout Saint Lucia.

Gustave told reporters that there’s a lot of saturation in the soil, making it easy for floods to occur.

“We are still experiencing bad weather so we are asking persons to remain vigilant to note that we are still in the hurricane season and that kind of weather is expected,” the NEMO Director stated.

She said when a full report it compiled it will be forwarded to the cabinet of ministers.

“We are receiving reports from all of the critical infrastructure agencies,” Gustave told reporters.

The NEMO Director called on individuals who have been negatively impacted by the rainfall and who have not been reached by NEMO officials, to contact the organisation.

She said Saint Lucia is expecting a tropical wave from Tuesday into Wednesday.
