It is the dry season but after raining continuously in the last 24 hours Barbados became a flood zone in the North of the island. BU family member islandgal246 posted pictures on her blog which exposes the problem for Barbadians. Whatever we are doing in Barbados as far as physical resource planning, is concerned – if you want to describe it as such – it is not bloody working!
I read Barbados Today about the flooding in the North of the island. I also saw a video on YouTube about the flooding.
This flooding isn’t a new problem. This has been happening for more years than I can remember. What is the government doing with all the money passing through its hands? All the different projects that they seem to be money makers seem to come first. So we are back to the Almighty Dollar. With the flooding situation, Barbados should have found ways regardless of the cost to have this problem resolved to ensure Barbadians are not threatened. Constantly patching up roads and moving people to different locations, building more houses on scarce land isn’t resolving this problem. Come on now, a blind man can see that this isn’t cutting it at all in resolving the situation with the flooding in Barbados.
I also read in Barbados Today that within the next 9 months construction on a marina will take place. Here again is millions of dollars being spent on yet another money making project within the tourist industry. What is all of this really doing for Barbadians who are having this same problem for as long as I can remember which has to be over 71 years, and becoming worse? If you can find this kind of money for all the different projects, how come you can’t seem to be able to resolve this problem with the flooding at whatever cost?
If Barbados is heading towards modernization, why have we not changed the plan which is not working?
Don’t you think that it’s time some very serious planning be done to resolve this problem for the betterment of all BARBADIANS? My two questions therefore to the GOVERNMENT:-
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS SITUATION?
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE THIS YOUR TOP PRIORITY?
