Support Being Offered to Public in Light of Flooding

Grand Cayman, 10 June 2024 – The National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) call centre has been activated today, Monday 10 June 2024, to aid persons who are impacted by flooding. The helpline is 949-6555 and calls are assessed according to risk and dispatched to the relevant agency for assistance.

The following roads remain closed at this time:

  • The Linford Pierson Highway (both eastbound and westbound lanes)
  • Agnes Way
  • East Boulevard (from its junction at Walkers Road)
  • Windsor Park Road (from its junction at Walkers Road)

“I would like to reassure the public that we are adequately prepared to offer support during the current flooding situation. NEOC has been partially activated to ensure that there is a tactical and coordinated response by all relevant agencies who are both trained and experienced in providing emergency relief. I ask the public to remain vigilant and supportive of each other as we go through the next few hours. It is our actions in such times that demonstrate the true strength of our community. Please stay tuned to official government channels and comply with the advice being given,” said Premier, Honourable Juliana O’Connor-Connolly.

Regiment officers are currently being deployed to areas that have been most affected, namely Windsor Park, Randyke Gardens and Tropical Gardens to conduct assessments and advise additional NEOC activities. Cayman Islands Regiment officers will also provide transport to students living in severely flooded areas.

The public is being asked to stay off the roads where possible. If driving is necessary, motorists are asked to drive slowly and turn on their headlights.

The Cayman Islands Red Cross and the East End Civic Centres are both activated as emergency shelters and have medical responders standing by.

Weather conditions remain relatively the same as cloudy to overcast skies with moderate showers and thunder are expected mainly over Grand Cayman through the afternoon. An additional 1 to 1.5 inches of rainfall is anticipated through this evening with slightly higher isolated maximums of 2-3 inches possible over Grand Cayman, which will lead to enhanced flooding of already inundated areas.  Less than 1 inch of rain is expected for the Sister Islands.

A small craft warning is still in effect as winds will be southeast to south at 15 to 20 knots with higher gusts in and around heavy thunder. Seas will be rough with wave heights of 4 to 6 feet.

Retail banks closed today at 2pm.

The next update will be issued at 6pm.
