Preliminary assessments show St Lucia was not severely impacted by the inclement weather associated with Tropical Storm Emily.
While some homes and personal property were damaged in flooding, Prime Minister Stephenson King said he was grateful the damage was not worse.
“I must indicate that we have been spared considering what we experienced with the rains leading up to Hurricane Tomas and the level of devastation we experienced for Hurricane Tomas. I must admit that Saint Lucia has been spared.”
King said he would continue to invest in desilting major rivers around the island to prevent the possibility of flooding in the event of future storms.
