  • Due to the unprecedented rainfall the surface water systems reached capacity in various locations and caused isolated of standing water due to the systems surcharging, additionally ground saturation occurs whereby the vegetated ground can absorb no more water thus areas become flooded, unfortunately during these events as in other parts of the county its a case of letting nature due its job and let the ground absorb the water once the rain stops.
