At least one person was hospitalised as a result of torrential rains that caused damage to some houses and flooded sections of Buccament Bay and Kingstown in St Vincent and the Grenadines early today.

The rains, which began before dawn and continued until around 8 a.m. triggered landslides and flash floods in some areas.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, in an update to the nation around 1:30 p.m. said while there were no deaths, someone from the Largo Height area was hospitalised when a wall fell and damaged a house.

Today’s flooding has been likened to the December 24 flood resulting from a trough system that left nine confirmed dead, three missing, and extensive damage to infrastructure and housing.
