BRACE FOR MORE FLOODS
Tropical Storm Bret has come
and gone, leaving in its path a
trail of destruction across the
Brett also indirectly claimed the
life of 40-year-old construction
worker Andy Manyair, who died
when he feel to his death after slip-
ping on a makeshift bridge as he
tried to run through the heavy rains
to get to his home.
Camilla Levin: Our country
needs to have all the religious lead-
ers come together to have prayers to
thank God for having mercy on us.
It could've been worse nationwide.
Hurricane season not over yet so stay
prepared. We got a small landslide
blocking the entrance to the house.
No cable, no Internet & no electric-
ity. Fallen trees and Bamboo fell on
T&TEC wires. Still waiting like any
other family in Biche etc.
Barry Telesford: Meh. Trail of
flood and the usual falling of trees.
George Lightyear: Climate
change is reality. Hurricanes, tropi-
cal storms and increased rainfall will
be more frequent occurrences as the
atmosphere and the oceans absorb
more heat due to increased levels of
carbon dioxide and methane.
Parbatie Sam: Omg! Thank God
Bret gone. May God help us to over
60 homes lose
roofs in Central
Tropical Storm Bret left scores
of residents in Central in total dis-
tress as many of them lost almost
everything to the raging flood wa-
ters that swept through the remote
villages of Caparo, Todd's Road and
Shyankaran Lalla: That should
read 60 homes lose roof which were
poorly constructed. Building codes
Harry Ramharack: The PM can
take a chopper ride to see the hard-
ships of the affected citizens. He
took a ride to Tobago to experience
the inconveniences sea-bridge trav-
ellers go through.
No bail for Harvey
Three men and a minor accused
of robbing Roman Catholic priest Fr
Clyde Harvey last week claimed they
were beaten by police to confess to
Theresa Lia: What is the root
cause to make a person decide "today
I will rob somebody."
Julia Clarke: Why do people
think robbing a priest and robbing a
citizen is different. Religion have this
place in a mess. The churches and
priests have failed miserably.
Melina Hutchinson: People are
denied bail until the police trace
them for previous convictions. Then
the amount of bail that should apply
to them is estimated. This has noth-
ing to do with whether the victim is a
priest or an ordinary man.
Nicole Caesar: Licks don't kill.
Enough talk. More licks please!!!
Glenda FrenchePopeau: Yes we
want justice but not at any price. Is
Father Harvey not able to identify
for PM hands
The police report on the death of
the 14-year-old boy who committed
suicide at a Children's Authority
"safe house" will be sent to Prime
Minister Keith Rowley shortly, says
Minister in the Office of the Prime
Minister Stuart Young.
Margaret Kelly: All the staff
should be discipline and get rid of
them and bring caring people who
understand mental health depres-
sion, anxiety. T&T people is highly
educated with degrees theory, but
they are lacking practical knowledge,
critical thinking, rescue knowledge,
and many more. What can you do
with a masters from an outdated
standard, always show off.
Rajpath Jackpath: Why? The
Prime Minister is now the DDP or
the Police or CoP?
Mike Penco: It took two years
for the SWRHA to install the CT
Scanner that has now gone defective
and loss of warranty due to an accu-
mulation of condensate while in the
package. Bought in 2010, installed in
2012. That's the state of the health
service even in the last regime watch.
Nobody cares about nothing but
Sharon Sookhai Charles: Only
God alone knows what goes on in
some of these homes ....RIP another
Devi Mohammed: Nobody cares
about the welfare of these kids. They
come and take your kids from you
and dump them in facilities and ne-
glect them. These systems need bet-
ter management and caring people
