SEVERE FLOODS HIT GUYANA AFTER HEAVY RAIN

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Authorities in Guyana say there is flooding in much of the country after more than eight hours of heavy rainfall.

Many streets are impassable in the capital of Georgetown and there were widespread reports of flooding in the lower floors of buildings throughout the city. No deaths have been reported.

The Education Ministry said schools throughout the capital region will be closed Thursday. Deputy City Mayor Patricia Chase-Green says there are also reports of flooding throughout the country.

Guyana is particularly prone to dangerous flooding. The coastal plains of the South American country are protected by a system of canals and drains and sea walls.
