Photos: Mill Creek Road Flooding Slows Traffic

January 31, 2014

Motorists traversing the Mill Creek Road area this morning [Jan 31] were met with water rising above the creek and flooding the roadway. A high tide at approximately 8.30am combined with heavy downpours throughout the night helped fill the street with inches of water.

At the deepest point, the water on the south side of road was about 15 inches deep and about 24 inches on the north side with the area stretching approximately 200 yards from water’s edge to water’s edge.

Yesterday’s rainfall was recorded at 6.9mm or 0.27″ bringing January’s total to 111.3mm or 4.38 inches according to the Bermuda Weather Service. Their forecast for today said, “A quasi-stationary frontal boundary near to our north will continue to produce periods of rain and showers today. These will ease tonight and Saturday as the front begins to weaken and drift northward.”

    The South gets ice & everything grinds to a halt. Bermuda get rain. Not much you can do about ice. You would think that in the 70 something years that the car has been in Bermuda engineers would have done something about drainage of roads.

        Thats what the W&E pays their engineers big bucks for & gives them jeeps to drive around in.
