Freak StormFamilies affected by the recent rainstorm in the Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) community are currently benefiting from the continuous donation of zinc sheets as well as cleaning agents and utensils, made possible through the Civil Defence Commission (CDC). Over a hundred families were affected by the storm which ripped through the community last Friday, leaving destruction to homes.On Tuesday, representatives from the CDC, along with Minister of State Dawn Hastings, Regional Chairman Renis Morian and Councillors visited 16 of the affected families where numerous donations were made. According to Regional Vice Chairman Elroy Adolph, the distribution is slated to continue during this week.Adolph said that beverage giant Banks DIH also came on board with additional assistance on Wednesday.The storm which lasted for some two and a half hours resulted in damage to homes in areas such as Blueberry Hill, Silvertown, Burnham Drive, Retrieve, Fair’s Rust and other areas. Following the storm, several residents complained that their rooftops had blown off and numerous trees were uprooted across the community. It also resulted in intense flooding in several residential areas as well as Central Mackenzie— which houses the main shopping district in the community. Numerous electrical power lines and posts were also damaged during the ordeal. Regional officials have since indicated that efforts have been made to budget for a relief bond in Linden which will assist in the storage of items in such times. Officials have also appealed to residents to utilise screws instead of nails when securing zinc sheets to the rooftops of their homes.
