UPDATE: Heavy rains lash Dominica, seven landslides reported in Castle Bruce

Traffic in flood waters at Ravine Cork

The Meteorological Office here has cautioned Dominicans to remain alert as heavy rainfall continues to lash the island.

Several communities are still dealing with the impact of landslides and flooding, after heavy rains over the past few days.

Three families had to evacuate their homes in Petite Soufriere yesterday because of landslides and more than seven landslides were reported in Castle Bruce.

Senior Met Officer Sheryl Leblanc has warned that once rainfall continues, more land slippage will occur as soils are saturated, and rivers will overflow their banks.

An upper level trough has been causing unstable weather across the Caribbean, and it may move away from the region before the end of the week, she said.

“This is just a forecast; if it sticks around, then we will continue to experience pockets of showers and thunderstorm. The general public and residents should remain alert. If you are living close to a river or near an area which is prone to landslide, please be vigilant,” Leblanc said Tuesday night.

Up until Tuesday, Public works operators were clearing up landslides in Castle Bruce, Goodhope and San Sauveur, among other areas.

In May 2010, three people were killed in San Sauveur after a landslide completely covered their home.

    There’s much more behind the grant. Ever wonder why there’s so many Chinese here? This is part of the deal in all the Caribbean countries. China is over populated so the gov’t’s must take them in. China sends them off with enough money to start businesses in our poor little islands.

    The most important element on earth is water;and the most distructive element on earth is water.Dominica have an aboundance of such.Unusual global climate visiting us with an over aboundance of water,with our kind of gabage disposal, throwing things where the eyes will not see, in all little wavin etc.blocking the 365 little river beds, and when water come and have to go to the see with their passage block, what you expect. We know how important a dot is in computer,we doing things in Dominica disregarding the little details hoping that it will not expose our lack there off(whatever it is).We should start to pay a little more attention in the way we do things in Dominica.When the rain fall it falls on all of us , when it floods it affects us all.It’s God’s way of telling us if we work together we can make things better.Dominica is us all.

      @ Jillian

      You make me smile. :) No I am not from Portsmouth whatsoever. Place me from Roseau. At present I reside in Toronto. Today, we had our share of as the saying, “old man winter.” Snow finally fell but it is considered “wet snow” which means that it will soon melt due to the mild temperature. As broadcasted on the news, Toronto was the last Province which had snow. All others had snow earlier. How lucky could we be for now.
      Yesterday rain fell all day with high winds. It is now forecasted that tomorrow we will have rain.
      At least, you are in a warm climate. The weather forecast for Toronto is that we will have a late winter but a messy one ahead. God help us too. Those wintry months could be bad.
      Wherever we reside, we cannot get away from bad weather of any nature. We can only hope for the best, pray and ask God to assist us. God bless!

    Well that just goes to show we need to be strategic as to how a proper drainage system can be developed here… Amidst the infrastructural development I hope they are brainstorming of the measures that need to be taken to avoid (1) damage to the road (2) mass flooding when we experience heavy rainfall and (3) more effective responses to the landslides in heavy trafficked areas….

    Yes DA people we can all recognize simple things like the importance of drainage for our roads and we know our climate and topography. How much or if any time do the Chinese contractors take to study or ask the locals about that? I agree with the individual who noted that we would be better served if proper engineering practices were followed in order to have a few quality roads rather than merely resurface significant portions of the roads resulting in lack of durability. These problems can only be alleviated when there is an appropriate mandatory level of competency for those approved to do the job! It should not be just take what you get! Government see to it that these road projects are done right so that future monies can be used for other projects like job creation: yes we tired of the free fish, give us the fishing rod so we can catch what kind and how much fish we want!

        November 30, 2011

        You Spy fail to understand the importance of the matter. There is no drainage system built on that road which would allow excess water to run off the roads. Also the decision to merely resurface the roads rather than build a solid foundation then place the surface is a poor one at best. The level of rainfall we get in Dominica the roads will not last. It is a problem that’s been there for years with the different government failing to see to it that the job of repairing the roads are done to appropriate standards. The Chinese’s engineers should know this valuable information so that they will be cognisant to implement proper drainage for the roads especially in obvious place like under cliff. Who is responsible for all this? I hope you get my drift Spy. Oh you would be better served if you spend the time reading your bible rather thinking of shit to reply. You will benefit from some divine intervention so you will understand accountability!

    Thanks to DNO for posting this information that Dominicans worldwide could view.
    I am deeply saddened that there is yet more flooding in Dominica. My first thought was, “Poor Dominica; not again especially the people of Canefield and Massacre in mind!” God help!
    The reason for the flooding is due to the low-lying areas which are susceptible to flooding. Those closer to the sea and rivers will experience this.
    Today in Toronto it poured rain as the saying. The rain did not cease all day and with high winds. It was a sort of a storm. It makes us wonder what is happening weather-wise. Thank God there was no thunder and lightning which is also not unusual even in winter. However, we do say, at least some of us who do not ski and skate, better rain than snow. :)
    We do get some tropical weather surprises in winter which depends on the temperature. This is November when we are supposed to get snow except for the mild weather.
    When I was a child my father told me that there was a bad hurricane in DA in November some years ago long before hurricane David, the latter which was the next bad hurricane since then. He related his and my mother’s experience, young and newly married, during a hurricane and how someone assisted him to barricade the windows and doors. They were fortunate to survive this bad hurricane. I suppose it is not unusual that such will occur in November.
    I pray that the rain and water will subside and that those areas will soon return to normal.
    Pray Dominicans, pray! Praying for you too. God bless you and protect you.

      @ Us

      You need to think beyond and backwards as well. What has been occurring in Dominica never occurred previously. Never in my lifetime while residing in DA there were such floods. I (we) never heard of them. The rivers as Layou River would overflow but not what DA has been experiencing in recent months to today. This is cause to make us think and conclude, whether right or wrong that the weather pattern has definitely changed. This is not only in DA but in the entire world.
      We could speculate that what is written in Holy Scriptures is coming to pass. Rest assured, wherever we reside there will be more disasters.
      Residing in Toronto, I read in yesterday’s newspaper there was an earthquake of approximately 4.3 in a suburb of Toronto which resulted in a loud noise.
      It was also stated that Canada will get “a big one” as it is speculated for California. This may occur in British Columbia, a Province of Canada in the Pacific. We are not certain.
      Last year Toronto had an earthquake of 5.0. This year, in summer there was a smaller earthquake. I felt both. This was not the only one since I am residing in Toronto and the area where I reside. It must be the 5th one. The 5.0 was the worst one and it was scary. One was in the early evening; another in the early morning and the others in early afternoon. I pray we do not have anymore but who knows? We can conclude that this is part of life.
      Floods and accidents occur worldwide. Last year in an area in Quebec, Canada a man, his wife and two daughters were killed. They were viewing a hockey game, at least the father. The earth underneath the home caved in and swallowed their home. They all perished. It was so sad to hear and read about.
      Do not think it is only in DA floods and negligence occur. DA is no worst than those progressive countries.
      Only our faith, genuine worship and prayers, performing loving acts of generosity and mercy to others as needed which may assist us and strengthen us when the inevitable occurs. Confidence in the Lord. Worldwide, we are all in it one way or the other.

      This was not written by Anonymous but by me, Truth and Justice. I do believe an error occurred. There was a problem with my Internet Provider.
      When I tried to send my comment to DNO, it did not register on DNO’s Website. I thought that something was wrong. I tried again to send it and received the message “Duplicate” – words to that effect.”
      Last evening I telephoned the Provider’s technician; was on the phone for approximately an hour. The technician went through their system and mine and corrected the error.
      Later in the evening, I re-sent it and it was accepted as coming from me. Somehow, probably the first time it was posted as if Anonymous sent it but it was an error. I do not know how this occurred. As previously stated, it may have been the fault of my Internet Provider.

    This is my first comment ever on DNO (no round of applause needed).
    I just have to say that every piece of news that comes out these days has got a bunch of comments in relation to these :
    1. How small- minded/ ignorant Dominicans are (mind you, the person who says that IS a Dominican)

    2. Something to do with the Government placing too much money in places that apparently has no need for such money ( Government does not cause floods, nature does. And if you have a better plan as to how to use the money then by God, run for Prime Minister or President in the next election or w/e IDGAF. No one in the big office gives a flying beep about your OH-so-educational-comment about politics and the economy.)

    3. Something completely and abosolutely unrelated to the story being presented. Por ejemplo – “soucoyahs” (hopefully I spelt that somewhat right)

    4. Something to do with the Chinese and how incompetent they are. (if you don’t like what they’ve done, report it to someone who can actually DO something about it).

    Our roads are always going to have landslides when heavy rains aint nothing no one can do bout that.Our terrain and constant rainfall is just part of life in d/a.For those who wanna complain maybe u guys should move to Antigua no landslides there.

    Man we just have to hold tight,and do what we can when the time permit, this is unusual rainfall, it will be agood exercise to straighten up this place.At least PWC should get some employment to help the families in front of this Christmas.No politics in that one there.

    this is why you guys should have spent the 100 million to renovate/improve/repair half the length of the west coast road instead of spending the total sum to simply TO RESURFACE………. waste of money

      better drainage extending the roads by grading cliffs or using dynamite ….then clearing away of the roads would be easier..during a landslide

      So right! I don’t know how this planning folks think. No foresight, no vision and no real solutions.
