As Vincentians join with the rest of the world in celebrating Christmas today, several persons are now assessing the damage done by torrential rains last night.

Reports indicate that at least two persons have been reported missing as heavy overnight rains caused severe flooding here.

Several areas were without electricity during the night and without pipe borne this morning.

Director of the National Emergency Management Organisation NEMO, Howie Prince filed this report this morning

Several persons were trapped in their home from floodwaters and the   E. T. Joshua Airport is expected to re-open at noon today after being closed due to flood waters.

The Paediatric Ward at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital was also flooded and heavy flooding was also reported in other parts of the nation’s capital, Kingstown.

And in light of the heavy rain, Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalvs will return to the state tomorrow, and will tour the affected areas on Friday
