KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, Sept. 6, CNS – Torrential rain in St. Vincent overnight has left the capital Kingstown flooded forcing the authorities to close the E.T. Joshua Airport.

All flights into and out of St. Vincent have been cancelled as a result of the flooding.

Last December, St. Vincent and the Grenadines was among three Eastern Caribbean countries (the other two being Dominica and St Lucia) affected by a slow-moving, low-level trough which dumped hundreds of millimetres of rain, killing at least 13 people, destroying agricultural farms and other infrastructure.
