Cedros Councillor: “Fix the floodgates…”

Local government representative for the Cedros community, Shankar Teelucksingh, says they are bracing for the sea to invade more of the area, as weather patterns continue to change, and sea levels rise.

Recent viral videos in social media show sea water entering people’s homes.

Councillor Shankar Teelucksingh told us the Bonasse Housing Scheme was affected the most by the recent invading sea waters. He notes in addition, fisherfolk were hard hit as their camps were flooded, their nets damaged and their boats swamped. Some 200 fishermen were affected, overall.
