    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 11 Thumb down 9

    Some serious questions need to get asked about the quality of our infrastructure. St Thomas got hit by the same storm, and didn’t suffer a fraction of the damage that we did. Why is our building of such a low standard?

      Where did you learn that STT got the storm? Not so but in stt they do not boldoze the mountains to get flat land. They build according to the land.

      Hurricane Hugh and Marilyn hit the BVI too and the damage suffered was nothing like the damage suffered in STT.

      The problem is that we too damn like to cut up the land. Government need to be firm about that. Because in the end everyone affected expect help from government.

      St T didn’t get half the rain we did. The intense rain was very localized

    This is on Mark’s head. He spent all the money without prioritising basic maintenance. There is no money to pay contractors neither does public works have any proper equipment to maintain the drainage system.

    He bought a set of crappy Chinese equipment unsuited for the work. If Mark had done a proper job I am not saying we would not have had problems but certainly not this bad!

    At a loss for words.Thank God,no loss of life.We must arise and press forward,helping each other along with whatever little assistance can be had by Government.
    I hope the insurance companies step up to the plate where applicable.

    our biggest problem is that government tends to give everybody a cut of government purse whether they qualify or not just to secure their X for election or for themselves to gain easy money.

    How about doing things the right way and giving professionals the appropriate job the have the experience for. then an only then would the road and infrastructure be of high standard.

    but construction is so expensive in the B.V.I. We should have minimum to no damage.
