[quote:Luisport:MV8yMTEzNjg2XzM1NjM1MTk4XzU4NkQ2M0JB] Storm Surge in Guyana on Thursday, 17 January, 2013 at 13:24 (01:24 PM) UTC. Description Strong winds and unusually high tides swamped Cornelia Ida and Anna Catherina, on the West Coast of Demerara on Monday afternoon. The villages were flooded after the enormous waves surged over the sea defences leaving some homeowners contending with water that was waist-high. Officials from the Ministry of Transport and the Region Three Administration, including Chairman Julius Faerber, visited the areas the next day and installed equipment to flush the flooded water back into the ocean. Villagers of Anna Catherina said that the ministry also ordered that the main drain off of the Sea View Road be dug deeper in order to prevent more flooding. However, they were unable to remove all of the garbage washed ashore. The residents yesterday said after the ministry’s intervention, the flooding decreased but some were still afraid to leave their homes. A resident of Anna Catherina told Stabroek News that his foot was pierced with a sharp object after he had decided to check the damage done to his bottom flat. He said that the water in his lower apartment so high that his furniture was floating. "The water come up to my waist," the man said. At Cornelia Ida, another resident recalled that she was sitting in her veranda when she saw the waves start to ride over the sea defences. She said that the water ripped away her fence and began to swell in her home. She explained that it was normal for the village of Cornelia Ida to experience high spring tides but this was the worst since the historic 2005 flooding of the coastland of Guyana. "The water de so high it cover half of my car," a man said. "Is till when they come and fix the dam and put in that culvert that the water start to drain off a little." Meanwhile, Abdool Fazeel, a businessman, said that his shop was under water for two days. "I see when the water started to swell and ride over the wall," he said, mentioning that Cornelia Ida experienced flooding every four months. He said that the community had complained to the Neighbourhood Democratic Council about the problem but always received promises instead of help. "Everybody came and visit this place and see the situation. Everybody from the cabinet come and visit this place. http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=SE-20130117-37906-GUY [/quote]
Giant Wave Impact in Other on Thursday, 17 January, 2013 at 10:39 (10:39 AM) UTC.
Luxury cruise line Silversea has been forced to cancel a cruise onboard the Silver Explorer after the ship was damaged by a giant wave in rough weather while on an 18-night voyage in South America. Media reports claimed four crew suffered minor injuries when a wave struck in the waters between Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica. The cruise line confirmed all 133 passengers and 113 crew were safe, but the damage to the ship was severe enough for Silversea to cut short the cruise and to cancel its next sailing on January 21. The ship has returned to Ushuaia in Argentina, where it departed in early January. It is expected to resume service with a 10-night cruise departing on January 31. [
