Governor Boyd McCLeary chaired his first meeting of the National Disaster Management Council (NDMC) held at Maria’s By the Sea Hotel.

Speaking at the opening yesterday, the governor set the tone for reports from two working groups which were recently established to examine the infrastructural and social issues emanating from the 2010 storm events. He said, “An important innovation at this year’s meeting will be a report from two technical working groups which were set up to discuss mitigation against future damage and to set plans and processes to help the Territory be better prepared for future events.”

The Territory has been under flash flood watches and warnings and precipitation levels have caused soil saturation resulting in the collapse of a retaining wall in Hannah’s Estate which contributed to the undermining of a roadway leading to homes in the hillside yesterday.
