Woman counting her blessings

Yvonne Olliverre continues to count her blessings as her back yard fell victim to a huge landslide last Monday in Bequia.

Olliverre said she was inside around 1:30 a.m. when she heard a loud bang behind the house.

“I went outside to see what was happening and I saw mud going down behind the house, I quickly ran inside and got my children and brought them outside,” said Olliverre.

She also pointed out that she lost her washing machine and her water tank as a result of the landslide.

At the moment, she is staying at her brother’s residence.
