Two temporary relief centres have been established at the Uitvlugt Estate Community Centre and the Uitvlugt Secondary School for residents affected by the flooding on the West Coast of Demerara in Region Three, according to the Department of Public Information (DPI). These shelters were set up by the Civil Defence Commission (CDC), after high tides over topped sections of the West Demerara seawall today, inundating the communities of Leonora, Stewartville and Uitvlugt. DPI said that the shelters will provide housing and meals to those affected, according to Deputy Director General of the CDC, Lieutenant Colonel Kester Craig. DPI said that the CDC has deployed 100 camp cots, 100 blankets, 100 pillows, and cooking utensils to be distributed to the two shelters. The flood affected areas were visited by Minister of Foreign Affairs Carl Greenidge who is acting in the capacity of Prime Minister and Minister of Communities Ronald Bulkan, this afternoon, Minister within the Ministry of Public Health Dr. Karen Cummings and from the Ministry of Public Infrastructure Annette Ferguson, earlier in the day.
