Torrential overnight rain, accompanied by gusty
winds, left several areas across the country flooded
and some roofs blown off in Sangre Grande.
Authorities of the Sangre Grande Regional Cor-
poration were responding to some families yesterday
seeking to provide help.
The rainfall over the last two days was associated
with the passage of the Inter Tropical Convergence
Zone (ITCZ) combined with the tail-end of a tropical
wave, according to the Met Services.
Councilor for Cumuto/Tamana, Rajcoomar Bha-
galoo, said residents in Guaico/Tamana, Coryal and
Manzanilla were affected by the bad weather on
Bhagaloo and chairman of the Sangre Grande
Regional Corporation Terry Rondon were touring the
affected areas yesterday.
At Coryal, one family reported water damage to
appliances and furniture after the roof covering the
kitchen, bedroom and garage blew off.
At Guaico/Tamana, a tree was reported to have
fallen on the owner s two water tanks and gate,
causing partial damage to the roof and leading to the
exposed area becoming water-logged.
Bhagaloo said two roofs were also reported to have
Cabinet yesterday agreed to a $1
million one-off grant to 200 displaced
workers at Hearty Foods Supermarket,
Arima, after the premises was
destroyed by fire on Tuesday.
People and Social Development Min-
ister Christine Newallo-Hosein said
that during yesterday s post-Cabinet
news conference at the Office of the
Prime Minister, St Clair.
She said Cabinet was reminded of
the existing services for victims of neg-
ative consequences of natural and man-
Hosein said: "Such persons can
access short-term relief under the pub-
lic assistance programme, where the
payment can range from $1,150 to $1,750
dependent on the family size, for up
to three months."
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bisses-
sar first announced Government s
intention to pay the displaced workers
$5,000 each on Wednesday.
Newallo-Hosein said the one-off
grant would go a long way to assist the
workers and their families.
She also said Cabinet agreed to the
establishment of a ministerial com-
mittee to help the displaced workers
get new jobs.
That committee will be chaired by
National Diversity and Social Integration
Minister Rodger Samuel and include
Labour Minister Errol McLeod, Public
Administration Minister Carolyn Seep-
ersad-Bachan and Tourism Minister
Science and Technology Minister Dr
Rupert Griffith, who was present at
the news conference, took questions
as Hosein departed after her statement.
Griffith said he was not surprised
that some people were claiming the
decision to make the $5,000 one-off
payment to each of the 200 workers
was being described as an election ploy.
"This is a genuine people-centered
grant based on requests to the Gov-
ernment," he added.

been blown off in Manzanilla.
In Claxton Bay, residents blamed ongoing excavation
work for the overspill of a river in the district. Some
15 to 20 homes at Mon Pleasant were affected between
Wednesday evening and yesterday.
One of the affected residents, Shawniff Hosein,
also cast blame on the Couva/Tabaquite/Talparo
Regional Corporation (CTTRC) for the damage done
to homes and property.
Hosein said the problem had been occurring for
several years but appeals for the dredging and widening
of the river which passes through the Springvale area
had not been heeded.
Gopichan Ramdath of the CTTRC Disaster Man-
agement was on hand to deliver emergency sand
bags to absorb the water.
