High tides have been devastating coastal Guyana. Families living near the shore are struggling to keep their belongings from being damaged by water that has breached the shore.
A&S General Contractors and BK International are two of the contractors who assisted with efforts.
Recent operations in Mahaicony have been extensive, but it seems as though those efforts did not provide a substantial relief for those communities, this time around.
The spring tides will run from October 25 to October 30. The Civil Defence Commission (CDC) has been packing a series of supplies to hand out to families in affected areas. Director General, Kester Craig, said that the body is continuing to improve its response and preparedness across Guyana with the use of technology.
In Georgetown, the CDC is monitoring overtopping. The body is asking persons to report areas where breaches in sea defence and overtopping of waves occur to them.
Attention is also being paid to Parika, Windsor Forest and other coastal communities, where some overtopping has put them in a state of unease
