Severe weather conditions early yesterday morning triggered heavy rains and flooding in Tobago and south Trinidad. Landslides in Delaford and King’s Bay left two dead, including 17 year-old Kathy Ann Ferguson, whose mother Shirley had to be airlifted to Port-of-Spain General Hospital in critical condition. Fire Service and Regiment crews spent the day clearing debris from collapsed and debris-strewn roads in areas like Louis D’or.

In Trinidad, the Cipero River broke its banks and swept away crops, livestock and left many stranded in their homes in such villages as Debe and Penal. Some tried to get around by using make-shift boats.
