(CNS): Preliminary assessments of standing water around Grand Cayman following significant rainfall since the weekend were conducted yesterday afternoon. It was found that most areas are now clear, with just “minimal pools of water” remaining in some areas of George Town and Bodden Town. According to a press release, Director of the Department of Education Services Mark Ray requested an assessment for the communities where children have been affected by the rainfall.

Hazard Management Cayman Islands duty officers drove through areas in and around Windsor Park, Randyke Gardens, Linford Pierson Highway, Washington Blvd, and Eastern Avenue in George Town and found that accessibility was clear in those areas. Communities in Prospect, Spotts-Newlands, and Belford Estates in Bodden Town were also reviewed.

“The 2024 Atlantic Hurricane season is only 13 days in and has already shown that preparedness is critical.” Hazard Management said, adding that the public should embrace the mindset of readiness. “It is never too early to make a plan and gather items for your emergency kits. Together, we can survive the season.”

    My road is still flooded today due to all the new construction surrounding me. Thanks Davenport for turning my road into a river, and for loud construction from 6am to 9pm.

    Somebody please check on those cows in WB who are standing on a tiny island in the middle of a big flooded field. They can get hoof problems.

    Water still standing on many roads and properties everywhere. More rain on top of the high water table levels and we are back to mass flooding again.

    Riding around in a new 4wd Silverado doesnt fix a damned thing.
