Works Minister Says Flooding in the Capital City Owed to Volume of Rainfall Experienced.

by | Aug 22, 2019

Minister of Works and Transport Rohan Sinanan on Thursday said the volume of rainfall experienced on Wednesday was at the root of the flooding in downtown Port-of-Spain.

Half of the entire volume of rain for the month of July, which amounted to 50mm, fell in just 1 hour.

The Minister had been speaking on the Power Breakfast show.

Minister Sinanan said no city could withstand that amount of rain in such a short period of time, but added that the water ran off quickly due to drainage works conducted in the downtown area.
