One student point out that if the situation continues, they will have no alternative but to stay home due to safety reasons.

In the last six years, flooding has brought about homelessness in the city, though in low numbers.

Hence, many are calling on the  Ministry of Education to improve its learning institutions near the costal belt since government institutions are those affected most.

“We regret walking through waters that are not safe at all. Our government needs to work annually renovating schools” residents added.

On the other hand, Moses M. Harvey, a resident of the Central Ward community amplified the voices of many in his community saying ‘Robertsport is a city surrounded by water and as such we experience flood every wet season.

He called out the City Mayor to work tirelessly in making sure leaders in various communities work positively in ensuring the safety of the people.

In addition to the many voices, Samuel B. Kessellie, Principal of Robertsport High, cautions the city government to put measures in place to open drainage in the city.

‘If nothing is done about this situation, the school will close in oder to protect both teachers and students.
