Another freak weather system

Just when we thought it was all over, suddenly and out of the blue came a freak weather system from nowhere. That system - just like Tomas - was largely undetected until it hit us. The weathermen say it is the result of a surface trough accompanied by moderate and heaver shower activity, thunderstorm and occasional gusty winds.

Apparently, this weather system has been with us since the evening of  November 17 (last evening) and it is projected to be around until November 19.

Fortunately, it has not significantly impacted Choiseul; but preliminary reports suggest that it has wreak significant havoc in Castries City, Bexon, Dennery and Soufriere. Many parts of the city was flooded. So were Bexon and Dennery.

The South is completely cut off from the North. The Colombette area is highly risky because of slope stability threats.

Vehicular and pedestrian commuting is challenging; and with the news of a young man's death by drowning, the authorities have warned that extreme caution should be observed.

As a precautionary measure, workers are being evacuated from the town of Soufriere and environs. Commuters traversing the southwestern corridor are asked to proceed with extreme caution as there are slides and rolling projectiles along the Soufriere-Choiseul Road.

The district rep for Soufriere - Hon Harold Dalson - is expected to make a statement on NTN later today.
