Flooding closes the city down

Monday, January 17, 2005

Flooding in Guyanas capital Georgetown closed the city down and left many areas along the coast knee-deep in water.
Light showers turned into heavy downpours that went on and on turning into the worst flooding in memory to hit the city.
The water receded only slowly as kokers were opened but places like the countrys national Theatre, the Cultural Center suffered damage.
All schools, banks and several businesses were closed until further notice.

The Georgetown Public Hospital, as well as the University of Guyana Campus, were under several inches of water. Residents in the Campbellville, Kitty, East and West Ruimveldt, Norton Street and some sections of the Bel Air areas were yesterday laying sandbags at their doorways and bailing water from their bottom flats.

Over at Laing Avenue and Castello Housing Scheme, the water was so high that efforts to bail out water from inside homes proved futile.

An eyewitness told the local Newspaper that an alligator was swimming in the Laing Avenue canal.

Another woman reported that there were snakes and fish in her yard and there were other reports of reptiles swimming around

The Ministry of Health also issued an advisory that included warnings to use only bottled, boiled or treated water for drinking and disinfecting water for domestic use like bathing and cooking.

Almost all of Georgetown Guyana closed down as flooding continued for the third straight day, leaving some people in waist-high water

Why did this happen to sweet sweet G.T?
Lord Almighty you're the only one we can turn to in this time of stress and despair. I would like to send a couple of words to everyone that was affected by the flood. Please my beautiful "Guyanese" people this is time for us to live in peace. Also this is the time for us to help our brothers and sisters, afterall "hand wash hand makes hand wash clean". Don't let what happened to our magnificant country put worries on your heart, because it could've been worst e.g.(Tsunami)......BLESS

God Why.
Why? Why? Why do poor people always have to suffer so much while the evil people are allowed to prosper? First Grenada then Haiti then South Aisa Now Guyana. God Why.
