The Tail of Tropical Storm Kirk Hits Barbados hard

Frantic cries for help as scared residents of Wotton, Christ Church, watched rising flood waters encroach their homes. A pregnant woman rescued from her home on the shoulders of a Barbados Defence Force (BDF) soldier.

A young asthmatic whisked from harm’s way. Cars stalled in roads, abandoned in waist-high waters by their drivers.

A downed electricity pole in Josey Hill, St Lucy, and scores from St Philip to St Joseph left without power.

These were the scenes as the island took a rainy beating from the tail end of Tropical Storm Kirk Thursday night.
