I'm living at a flood relief shelter

Yep...the flooding situation has gotten so bad along the East Coast of georgetown, guyana, that they are urging all residents to move to these shelters they set up. The water level in the lower flat of my home topped 5 feet last night, and they say it is too dangerous to continue living in such conditions. The shelter here is not bad. To the Brazilians on the board....your leader stepped up big-time. The Brazilian government has donated two plane loads of aid to the flood hit area and has also set up a shelter. The situation is grim, as the flooding is expected to continue throughout this week. So...I'm a homeless person for the time being.

Keimo I know what it's like to be flooded out of your house...it's a terrible and scary time.

Hope you're able to get home soon, and that there's not too much damage

There's a bummer. Good to hear the Brazilians stepped up. Are sreius rebiilding efforts going to be needed, or is ths temporary?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Hey guys...thanks for the kind words. I have never seen anything like it. No one expected this and it caught people completely unaware. There is serious damage to most homes along the Coast and there have been two drowing deaths thus far...in their own homes . Who knew?

Cam...wouldn't I love to ...can you imagine the things I'd do to you ?

Richie...thanks love. The water has receded by about 4 inches thus far . I hope to be home by Monday at least to start the cleanup.

Volcana: I don't think serious rebuilding efforts will be needed , but alot of homes suffered lots of damages. The insurance companies will be running to find ways to avoid some of these policies

Thanks to all

Electric Avenue singer Eddy Grant to help flood victims in native Guyana

1 hour, 18 minutes ago


GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) - Singer Eddy Grant wants to use his music to help victims of floods that killed at least six people and displaced thousands of residents in his native Guyana, his spokeswoman said Wednesday.



Grant, best known for the 1980's hit Electric Avenue, is planning to donate proceeds from upcoming music projects to relief efforts in the South American country, said Josanne Leonard, the singer's spokeswoman. One year of artist royalties from Grant's upcoming album, Reparation, will go to relief efforts, as well as half the proceeds from the sale of four Grant commemorative stamps.


More than 101 centimetres of rain have fallen in Guyana since Dec. 26, including more than 68 centimetres this month alone. An average of 20 centimetres normally falls in January.


Rains have stopped and flood waters are receding in the capital of Georgetown, where life is returning to normal. But other coastal towns are still in knee-deep water, while doctors are treating hundreds of people for skin rashes, diarrhea and other ailments related to the floods.


The 56-year-old singer, who lives in Barbados, will also donate all profits from the sale of the DVD The Plaisance-Sparendaam Tribute to Eddy Grant, which will be released shortly and features performances by Grant and speeches by Guyana President Bharrat Jagdeo.

Hey Barrie...yeah. The flood waters have receded in most of the Coastal Communties. I got home, but I wasn't able to clean up as I went to party in Trinidad for carnival. I got back last night, place is a mess, I have lots to do and alot to replace. They're also immunizing everyone, cause there is an epidemic of leptospirosis because of the water being that high and that stagnant for so long. So...yeah...I'm out of the shelter
