Members of NEMO-Toledo district emergency coordinating team are visiting flooded areas in Toledo. Correspondent Paul Mahung reports.

"Several Rural Toledo Communities are affected by flood waters due to heavy rain falls Sunday and into Monday. With the need for assessment of damages and possible assistant to the affecting areas members of Toledo District Emergency Coordinating Team, along with the NEMO Toledo Coordinator, Kenton Pahram, are making efforts to reach all affecting area."

KENTON PAHRAM, NEMO Toledo Coordinator
There has been some flooding primarily to the western part of the district. Today I assessed the area of Jordan along with members from the District Emergency Committee and a member from the Search and Rescue Committee and a member from the Transport and Evacuation Committee. Our purpose was to see the flooding situation that had occurred according to reports in Santa Teresa Village. Unfortunately, due to the flooding situation, we found on the road in Jordan and also in Santa Ana Village, we were unable to reach Santa Teresa today but as soon as the water recedes to safe level we will take a trip back out there and get an assessment on what is going on. Currently there is flooding in Jordan, the road to - between Jordan and Blue Creek is flooded also the road between Santa Ana Village and Barranco Village is also flooded and water rising very rapidly. We want to use this opportunity to advice all motorist and people trafficking the area to be very careful and not to venture out in flooded water. You can find yourself in very dangerous situations and get trap. The current situation in Jordan is we have about several homes that are flooded out, Jordan currently have a flood shelters so the residence of Jordan, the affected people can easily access the flood shelter and be safe. We went there and spoke to members of the Council and advice them of that. Also our concern though is in Santa Teresa where we didn't expect that kind of flooding and as we understand there are some homes that have been affected so as soon as the water recedes to a safe level we want to look at that situation. It is not an area where we normally see floods; it's something that is a concern to us at this time.

"In some of the affected area, regular school classes have been cancelled due to flooded road conditions and information from Aguacate Village, Alcade, Abraham Can, confirmed that due to damages from flood waters the road area to the approach of Aguacate Bridge needs urgent repairs. Reporting for Love News, Paul Mahung, Punta Gorda."
