Landslide on Soufriere main road

Motorists using the Soufriere main road are being asked to proceed through the area with extreme caution as a landslide occurred there this afternoon.

No one was hurt in the slide but efforts are underway to clear the debris from the road. Fears exist that it may get worse as more rocks might slide on the roadway.

      I would tell you to “pay your toobonda” if I could meet you. Why don’t you give that advise to your hypocrite brothers and sister in the Middle East that, bulling each other, sexing the young ladies in their butt to protect their virginity for marriage, have hymen (virgin) replacement surgery to fool potential mates and killing girls/ ladies because they dare to date outside of contract marriage? Even worse you all call the killings honor killings……in honor of which god I don’t know.

      You guys killing each other daily with no conscience?

    According to the weather report, there is a good chance that a hurricane may develop and affect the lesser antilles by Thursday of next week. We have not even gotten a hurricane yet and such infrastructural damage. All we can do is pray. May God have mercy on us.

    Dominica is made up of volcanic action and is hilly and stoney. That is our island.
    Two places that could have landslides, be it that they are called rockslides, are Canefield, under the cliff and Soufriere area. This could be prevalent after a heavy rainfall. It softens and the stones get loose. If I recall another area leading to Pointe Michel. Is this the one which is called Solomon? Correct me if I erred. I have not mentioned this for some years.
    As always, accidents happen and will always happen. We just have to keep God in mind as we worship him and go along our way. God protects. Ask him for his protection.
    I recall those days as a teenager and older we would go to Pointe Michel, make pilgrimages prior to the Feast of Our Lady of La Salette and on the Feast Day. She especially intercedes for us to her Blessed Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, for our protection.
    Everyone who goes to Pointe Michel from Roseau must pass under the cliff. Those rocks could fall as well with no warning.
    Some people have been fortunate that on occasion just after they past or prior to passing under those cliffs, the rocks would fall.
    May no one get hurt from those falling rocks at Soufriere. Be careful drivers and pedestrians.

      Ah you talk to damn much man! Cha man!

      You talking a set of rubbish. What Jesus can do for you? He said of his own self HE CANT DO ANYTHING.

      Lord Jesus Lord Jesus, you just practicing idolatry worshiping others besides the Most High. Trust me if you die on this polytheism you will go to hell! No forgiveness if you die on that!

    The govt. needs to have heavy equipment on standby for any type of road clearing that can also be rented out when not in use for emergencies.
    This stuff happens every year.
    They also need to wire up the hillside so that more rocks can’t fall onto the road.

        There is only One God. He is our Almighty Father, God the Father. He does not have any other name and does not go by any other name. Much more could be stated about that but this is sufficient for now.
        Where have you gone wrong? Who and what prevented you from following the truth?
        I would love to know where the soul of Selassie is, whom his idols worshipped; likewise Mohammed. Unless grants me a vision I will not know, as much as I have a fair knowledge. One thing, when we die I will fully know where he is; we will all know where all the souls will end up, Heaven or Hell.
        Some members of humanity have a habit of exulting other human beings as Selassie whom God also created. They do not exult God our loving Creator and Ruler of the world but a sinful person whom God created.
        Such ignorance of the truth.
        Are you not aware how you hurt the heart of God when you exult his creatures and not Him, the Creator?
        The day will come when the truth will be revealed to you. I hope it will not be too late for you eternally.
        Man’s rejection of God leads to eternal damnation and Hell.

        These are not natural disasters. These are MAN-INDUCED disasters. We are not exercising commonsense and wisdom. We think we can build, cut, remove, plant, plunder, loot, do anything anywhere not thinking of how we are affecting the natural balance of things.
