Flooding Brings Chaos To Nassau

On Shirley Street and Bay Street stores locked their doors and in some cases placed boards in front of them to keep the water out.

Water rose in the streets of New Providence yesterday and several areas experienced extensive flooding after a series of cloudbursts dumped inches on the capital.

Cars stalled as they attempted to manoeuvre through the city and store managers tried to keep water at bay.

On Shirley Street and Bay Street stores locked their doors and in some cases placed boards in front of them to keep the water out.

Traffic came to a standstill in the early afternoon as main roads, suchas Nassau Street and Poinciana Drive were inundated by flood water.

Drains were overflowing all over the island as 'small lakes' formed in the streets.
