St Kitts and Nevis: Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris conducted a walkthrough in Phillip’s village this morning to assess the damages done thereafter; several residents had their homes and yards flooded as a result of overflowing ghauts. 

On Saturday, April 30, 2022, Prime Minister visited the constituency and interacted with the people who have suffered a lot due to the yards floods.
