Ministry issues high tide alert
The Ministry of Public Works has issued a high tide alert and says that Monday’s and Tuesday’s tides will be the highest.
Two weeks ago raging tides surged over the sea defences between Kitty byways and Turkeyen shutting down a key stretch of the East Coast Highway and swamping the Ocean View International Hotel.
In a notice in yesterday’s edition of the Guyana Chronicle, the Ministry of Public Works said that Spring tides began yesterday and will continue until January 31.
It said that the predicted tides indicate above normal levels for this period with Monday, January 28 at 4.47 pm and Tuesday, January 29 at 5.26 pm being the highest at 3.05 meters.
The ministry urged that the necessary precautions be taken.
