The Trinidad and Tobago Housing Development Corporation (HDC) says the company is monitoring the weather and resultant flooding situation across the country which is affecting its various housing developments.
In a release on Wednesday, the HDC noted that several measures have already been implemented to assist affected residents in the East.
“We have distributed sandbags in Oropune Gardens, Piarco where the level of the Arouca River is rising, and we will provide further assistance to this and other communities when the water levels recede. We have placed and turned on pumps in strategic locations and these are being used to push excess water out.”
HDC also noted that their Disaster Management team has been on the ground monitoring most high-risk communities.
“Unfortunately, in some areas, the volume of water has risen faster than predicted. For those areas, the HDC will continue to monitor and provide assistance to residents as needed. Clean-up crews from the HDC are on standby and will be deployed once the weather permits.”
