Discuss  Flooding In Trinidad & Tobago Just imagine that a little bit of rain falls and your home or the streets are totally flooded out. Drainage in Trinidad and Tobago is terrible and the excess of refuse seems to be no help to it. Will there ever be relief?

Flooding In Trinidad & Tobago - Page 3

A couple of days ago there was a turbulent thunderstorm that caused major flooding in Diego martin, a repeat of 11th August 2013. As a result many homes were flooded out. Some claim that it is a lack of dredging and clearing the drains but the head of the Diego Martin Corporation says (TV6) that it is not because of that. He claims the reason is because the people built in the wrong place so when storms like this come they will be flooded.

My concern for the people of Diego Martin is that there can be a three-peat. Last night, there was a huge downpour and it is set to hit again. Woe unto them if they do not improve the drainage system there!

The irony in this is that we are not far away from the end of the hurricane season and yet there are many storms circulating around the Caribbean and Gulf Of Mexico. Just the tail end of any passing storm can cause the havoc you see in Diego Martin and elsewhere.

So the rains are back and so are the floods and the same problems happen again and again. One of the big issues with regards to water flow is the number of ill built homes / structures made on the mountains since they cause the water flow to be diverted into areas not made for the abundance of water after raining.

One little piece of rain falls in Port of Spain and the vendors there could go swimming as if it is Maracas with cars passing through the water making waves.

Too funny and each government says they will solve the problem. When Warner was in Works he said he brought in foreign engineers to solve it, so what happened to that?

Overnight there were very strong winds and rain that took away roofs and uprooted trees. Electricity was also off for awhile during the morning. Now I just heard the weatherman say that what we experienced is just a small part of a bigger tropical wave that is on its way. Brace yourself for more bad weather tonight.

For the past five days rains have pounded the East and destroyed the Mazanilla Rd. As well as many buildings in the area. People in Sangre Grande have also been affected. Considering this is a yearly thing why isn't more proactive things done to stop this from happening such as sand bags in certain areas and forcing people in flood areas to build to standard through government loans, etc.
