Hello!

Tropical Storm Grace has passed and left us with lots of water, uprooted trees, broken power lines, damaged roads, flooded communities etc.

The northern parishes got the brunt of the winds and torrential rain.

We recorded about 10.4 inches of rain in the South and more is expected in the afternoon.

Shelters were opened to facilitate persons in flooded areas.

The power went out in my area about 7pm, and came back about 11pm when the rain and winds eased a bit.
