Over 100 residents along the Cuyuni river in Region Seven have been affected by rising floodwaters, forcing many of them to relocate to higher ground.
The Civil Defence Commission with support from the National Flood Monitoring Taskforce has moved into a number of the affected villages to offer support to residents.
In a statement the CDC said Region Seven communities like Kaikan, Carboo, Rock Landing, Wenamu and Eteringbang have all been affected.
Flood Relief Supplies have been distributed to several areas via the Regional Authorities and the Guyana Defence Force, and more supplies are scheduled to be delivered there shortly.
The CDC said it has an assessment team in the Region working with the Regional Representatives to further assess the developing situation. Residents countrywide are encouraged to report all flood impacts to local authorities or the National Emergency Monitoring System (NEMS) on 600-7500 or 226-1114 at any time
