Heavy rains yesterday afternoon caused flooding in several parts of the country, catching motorists and pedestrians alike by surprise. From top, clockwise, cars and maxi taxis negotiate the floods at the intersection of the Priority Bus Route and Morvant Junction; the Cipero River in San Fernando is swollen with flood waters; a toddler helps her mother hold on to the umbrella in San Fernando and a man, with lunch in hand, negotiates the floods on Murray Street, Woodbrook.
