Severe flooding in the Picard area of Portsmouth caused by heavy rain earlier today in that part of country, has subsided, according to a Portsmouth resident.
Domininica News Online was informed that the area close to Whitchurch IGA was flooded by water which overran the banks of a nearby river.
A source told DNO earlier, that the water had risen to the extent that it was entering homes and businesses in the area and some people had to seek emergency shelter.
No injury or loss of life were reported but one eyewitness told DNO during the flooding that “it,s rough there and people need to be careful or lives can be lost.”
Latest reports are that’s it’s still raining in the area but the river is no longer overflowing its banks and the flooding has subsided.
