Member of Parliament for the Salisbury Constituency, Hector John is urging motorists on the West Coast and residents in the areas of Macoucherie, Coulibistrie and Salisbury to exercise extreme caution as the rivers in these areas are posing a challenge at this time.
The island is presently being affected by a trough system which is generating unstable conditions and heavy rains.
John told Dominica News Online on Thursday that the river has overflowed its banks in Macoucherie where a Bailey bridge was installed recently making it difficult for motorists.
He also said extreme caution must be taken when going through the temporary bypasses installed on the West Coast.
John stated that there are challenges at the Batalie River and the Salisbury River.
He stated further that the Coulibistrie River is posing a threat to some homes in the village of Coulibistrie.
“We want people to exercise extreme caution in these areas,” he advised.
