Bamboo residents need clean-up assistance

Just over three weeks ago res­i­dents of Bam­boo set­tle­ment were dev­as­tat­ed for the third con­sec­u­tive year by flood­wa­ters when Trop­i­cal Storm Karen passed over the is­land.

How­ev­er, even though the wa­ters have long since re­ced­ed from their prop­er­ties, res­i­dents are fac­ing an­oth­er is­sue; their drains are still filled with slush—more than they can clean. This is why they are ap­peal­ing to pri­vate cit­i­zens to as­sist them with the re­quired ma­chin­ery to clean their drains.
