In less than 24 hours residences in South Ruimveldt, North Eat Lapenitence, Alboystown and other sections of Georgetown were affected by extreme flooding, and an alleged robbery in Alboystown after a driver was stuck in his vehicle in the flood waters.
The residence of Albouystown took to the streets to vent their frustration about the flood waters along with corroding off sections of the street to avoid drivers from traversing the area.
Meanwhile, a resident of North East LA penitence highlighted that the drains in his area have not been de-silted for years, which is one of the contributing factors to the flood.
A visit was also made to the sluice on Princess and Water streets which was operational and will remain open until 12 am, to help drain the flood waters.
Persons around Georgetown can expect more rainfall tomorrow morning, somewhere between 5.0 mm and 1.5mm.
