    Flooding in St. Vincent and the Grenadines

     
    On the 24th to 25th of December, the Caribbean Island of St.Vincent and the Grenadines was greeted by destruction. Flash floods caused by the effects of a trough system left approximately 156 Vincentians homeless, 8 confirmed dead and 5 reported missing. The areas mostly affected were The Vermont Valley spanning down to Buccament Bay, Spring Village, Rose Bank, and Dark View on the Leeward side of the island and South Rivers, O'Briens Valley, Georgetown and Spring Village on the Windward side.

    The island also sustained damages to its main hospital with an estimated cost of EC $ 2 million dollars.

    More than 40 percent of the island is also out of pipe borne water as the water system on the island sustained significant damages.

    There was also significant damage to the bridges and road ways in parts of the island
