Ivan pushing Montrose man over cliff’s edge

Curth Clifton, a 25-year-old artist of New Montrose is pondering how his plight can be brought to the attention of the National Emergency Management Office. He complained that up to last Monday, six days after the passage of Hurricane Ivan, no one from the Assessment Office had visited the house in which he was living. {{more}}
Clifton and his brother Peter, 24, dwelt in a board and wall structure at New Montrose overlooking capital city Kingstown.
Ivan left its mark in regional history, having carved a path of death and destruction in its trail across the Caribbean region.
The New Montrose abode, owned by their mother Patrica Grant was incomplete at the time. The gusts tore off sections of the roof and caused walls to collapse.
Curth is anxious about the next move. He lost furnishings and other possessions, and he has to find ways of going on with his life. But the effects of the storm, although perhaps minimal when compared to what took place in neighbouring Grenada, are still worrying him.
