As mentioned in the story, District Manager for Ministry of Works Emil Cano was expected to visit the area today to access the situation and see how soon work can commence in the area to alleviate the flooding.


What we can tell you is that Cano did inspect the road today, but the news coming out of the Ministry of Works is not good.

“I got in touch with Mr. Cano of the ministry of works today and he gave me an update of the conditions of the Sarteneja road and the problem is that it was worse than what was originally thought and Mr. Cano ran through the flooded area and he mentioned that it was about half mile of flooded road that we have.”

“What will NEMO do to assist these people that need to get in and out of the village presently until something can be done by ministry of works to alleviate the situation?”


Willard Levy – DEMO Coordinator


“The only thing we can think of is to find a way how to transport these people back and forth, one way of doing is probably getting the BDF to get involve and give some assistance by transporting these people across but I need to get this confirmation from headquarters and see if that would be possible and if we can do that then I believe we can assist the people in the time being until some solution is found.”


Victor Castillo – Reporter


“How soon are these people should expect this assistance?”


Willard Levy – DEMO Coordinator


“Well, I will be calling in tomorrow morning to make this report but I need a final confirmation from the engineers so I will be making a report but I should be expecting anything confirm until after the engineers have made their assessment as to whether there is a possibility to dealing with the water if it is not a possibility which should be by tomorrow then we will respond right away by trying to get some assistance to these people.”


Chief Engineers are scheduled to assess the area tomorrow. We will be monitoring the situation closely and keep you informed about the developments.
