Trinity School of Medicine Donates Essential Supplies to Sandy Bay Residents

In late November 2016, an eastbound trough storm system impacted St. Vincent and the Grenadines, producing exceedingly heavy rains that resulted in serious flooding and  landslides & slippages in some areas, mainly on the Northeast and Northwest sides of mainland St. Vincent (For context, the campus is located in the southern region, on more forgiving terrain and sheltered by the island's mountains).  The devastation caused by these two days of incessant showers destroyed several homes and vital roads; entire fields of crops were washed away. The water and electricity supply in some areas were disconnected, leaving these communities without a ready supply for more than a week, and in some very severely affected areas, up to about three weeks.  One of the most severely affected areas in the country was an area on the North Eastern side of the country called Sandy Bay.
