House collapses in Mt Dor

A family of eight escaped injury after their single-storey concrete home collapsed following a landslide.

Around noon Tuesday, members of the family from William Street, Mt Dor began noticing the movement of earth near their home after heavy rainfall.

Upon further inspection they began noticing cracks around their house and shortly after the entire structure collapsed.

The family who lost most of their belongings breathed a sigh of relief that no one was harmed in the incident.

News of the devastation reached Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh who visited the family, provided some relief items and pledged to assist the family further in rebuilding.
