Tweet Sharecenter_img Share Public Works Minister Rayburn Blackmoore has reported to the media that residents along the country’s west coast who were affected by Tropical Storm Ophelia in 2011 will from Tuesday receive some assistance from the government.Flooding caused in Massacre due to Tropical Storm Ophelia in September, 2011Blackmoore announced that over 100 residents will receive financial assistance following the September 28th flooding which caused severe devastation to their property.“Persons who have been affected would have to go to the Ministry of Community Development and pick up a letter. They would use that letter to go to the National Bank and collect their money.”He has also cautioned that this should be “done in a civil manner” one which he said is “consistent with our behavior in Dominica”.Blackmoore further explained that however that because of the number of families which are in need of assistance it is not possible to meet the total loss of each family. Flooding in Massacre, in September 2011 “There are some persons who were assessed who might not be on the first list but the supplementary list is being prepared. We want to advise people to start to collect their letters by Tuesday. It is assistance, not compensation.”The Minister warned that his government is making an effort to assist these families which should not be mistaken as compensation.“Government has no legal obligation to give people financial assistance when these natural disasters take place but in a spirit of the fundamental principles of the Dominica Labour Party that is grounded in assisting people, we believe that it’s within our mandate to do so.”He said the government, because of its concern about “the social displacement of a number of families the damage that was caused to public infrastructure” saw it necessary to step in and assist these families.
