Over thirty roadways in the parish were affected by rainfall during the period January 4 to 9. At least one roadway, Bourbon to Maidstone, remains impassable.

The team will embark on a fact finding mission, with a view to generate solutions for the damages which are estimated to value over $140 million dollars.
