Heavy rains have caused part of the Upper San Fabien Road in Gasparillo to cave-in causing an electricity pole and a tree to collapse on top of a house.
The landslip was so severe that only one side of the road is now passable. Land behind the home of a resident known only as Lall also slid down, causing a tree to fall.
Although T&T is facing a difficult period following devastating flooding last weekend, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley admits he felt compelled to turn down help from Caricom countries because "we have been coping .... and coping very well."
Rowley said he said nothing wrong by not accepting help from our Caribbean neighbours.
The PM made the comment earlier today as he delivered the feature address at the sod turning ceremony for the $49 million Diego Martin Health Centre.
Several families at Ramlal Trace, off Bejucal Road, Cunupia, say they were kicked out of the Munroe Road Hindu School - a designated flood shelter - on Monday, after they sought shelter there on Saturday.
Antoinette Jaikaran, 58, told Guardian Media she and her family were told they needed to leave the school’s compound as clean-up crews were going in to sanitise the compound for the resumption of classes yesterday. She said she was told to leave by Chaguanas West Member of Parliament Ganga Singh.
Sandals Resorts International is offering US$50,000 to flood relief efforts.

It says that the areas carded to receive assistance include Sangre Grande, Kelly Village, Oropune, Arima, Tunapuna, Caroni, Chaguanas and Couva.
