Floods in Diego again
Day time showers yesterday caused street and flash flooding in flood prone areas in the Diego Martin. Dr Amery Browne, MP for Diego Martin Central, who toured the area said his main concern was domestic flooding. “We received a report of two houses that had water at Ann Avenue. There was mud and silt on the roads but it ran off quickly,” he said.
Browne said a pine tree crashed on the roof top of the Form Five block at Diego Martin Central Secondary School. A school official said there would be no classes for over 100 Form Five students today as workmen were scheduled to remove the fallen tree. “I spoke to the Diego Martin Corporation and the Ministry of Works and the tree will be cut tomorrow morning (today),” Browne said.
Officials at the corporation said there were showers yesterday but they did not receive reports of flooding in various communities as occurred two weeks ago.
