Liat sends condolences

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

The management and staff of regional carrier Liat (1974) Ltd yesterday expressed condolance over the loss of life, devastation, and human suffering caused by last Tuesday’s torrential rain in St Vincent, St Lucia and Dominica. 



In a message to the prime ministers of the three affected countries, the airline’s acting CEO Julie Reifer-Jones said: “It was with a deep sense of sadness that all of us at LIAT learnt of the devastation and tragedy at a time when people the world over were celebrating or preparing to celebrate Christmas with family, friends and loved ones. “As you deal with this tragedy, please be assured that all those who were affected are in our thoughts.” 


A slow-moving low-level trough brought torrential rains, death and destruction to the affected islands from Christmas Eve. The trough system resulted in 171.1 mm of rainfall within a 24-hour period ending at 8.50 am on Christmas Day.
