Reports of downed poles, landslides, impassable bridges and roads


Continuous rain from early this morning has resulted in flooding across the island.

St. Lucia News Online (SNO) has received reports of landslides, impassable bridges and roads, and downed power lines in the north and south of the island.

The midday weather report said though an improvement is expected later today, low level moisture and instability will continue to produce cloudiness, scattered showers and thunderstorms over the Lesser Antilles.

Residents in areas prone to flooding and landslides are being asked to be vigilant. Small craft operators and sea bathers are also advised to exercise caution due to rough seas.

Below are reports being obtained by SNO:

* The Choc Bridge is impassable

* A breadfruit tree fell on electrical wires in the Cabiche (Babonneau) area, resulting in a power outage.

* Reports of flooding in Dennery

* As a result of the persistent heavy rains, the bypass after the Desruisseaux gap is impassable for some vehicles.

* Reports of a landslide, fallen electricity pole in the Barre d’Isle area. Traffic issues as a result.

* Reports of flooding in Bexon, Castries City Centre, Cul de Sac

* The Ministry of Youth Development and Sports and its partners would like to advise the public that the second round of debate in the National Debating Competition which was scheduled for today, November 8, 2014, has been postponed. Due to the inclement weather conditions a decision has been taken to reschedule all four debates to November 15, 2014.
