Plenary Asks House Leaders To Work With Executive On Flood Relief
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, September 18 (LINA) -The Plenary of the House of Representatives has requested its leadership to work with the Executive Branch to speedily provide relief assistance to victims of the recent floods in Monrovia and its environs.

The lawmakers described the conditions of the victims as deplorable, requiring proactive actions to bring relief to the destitute people.

They made the request Thursday following a lengthy debate on a communication  Montserrado County Representative Munah Youngblood sent to Speaker J. Alex Tyler dated September 15, calling on the body to work along with the Executive Branch of government in considering prompt intervention to address the flood situation.

Heavy down pour of rain this week forced hundreds of people out of their homes and destroyed several structures.

Plenary also mandated the House’s Committee on Public Works to liaise with the ministry in putting in place measures aimed at addressing the zoning problems in the country, and report in two weeks.

Meanwhile, the lawmakers have attributed the annual reoccurrence of flood in the country to the construction of structures in allays and waterways, and the dumping of dirt in drainages in communities.
