A life of misery .
That’s how one Clarendon Member of Parliament is describing the condition being faced by some residents who are experiencing the third flooding incident in three months.
Flood rains on the weekend affected central parishes and left residents cleaning up damage to their home or property.
Member of Parliament for South West Clarendon Noel Arscott says communities in his constituency were affected significantly, some for the first time, but for some residents this is the third time in recent months.
He says some residents are feeling a sense of despair. Some of them have leaking roofs and the situation is compounded by mosquitos.
Meanwhile Mr Arscott who is the Opposition Spokesperson for Local Government and Community Development is calling for a comprehensive drain cleaning programme.
According to him, the main drains are of immediate concern. He adds that minor drains which are the responsibility of the municipal corporations must also be addressed.
Mr Arscott says the matter is urgent and almost at crisis proportion.

He adds that the National Solid Waste Management Authority NSWMA must act now to clear debris which contributes to the blockage of drains.
