Heavy rains cause Takutu to overflow
…section of Boa Vista road washed away
Guyana continues to experience heavy downpours as a result of La Nina. Neighbouring Brazil is also suffering with some parts experiencing severe flooding.
According to reports up to yesterday, the Lethem/ Boa Vista area had experienced three days of continuous rainfall and there has been no break in this period.
This has badly affected the area and resulted in a section of the Boa Vista road being washed away.
Meanwhile the Takutu River is presently overflowing along its banks and the water in the Moco Moco creek continues to rise.
Residents have once more begun to prepare themselves for the worst and are expecting the situation to worsen as the days go by.
As a result, persons travelling along the trails to the south of Lethem and the stretch of road between Point Ranch and Pirara in the North of Region Nine, will encounter difficulties.
It is expected that they experience challenging conditions in the process.
