When SEARCHLIGHT caught up with the Ottley Hall resident on Sunday morning, he was supervising workmen who were trying to effect repairs to his roof.

Burgess said that the damage to his house, which includes a broken widow pane, occurred at about 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Burgess also lives close to where a St. Vincent Electricity Services Ltd. (VINLEC) pole, carrying high tension wires and a transformer fell.

General Manager of VINLEC Thornley Myers was in the area on Sunday morning assessing the damage to the electricity distribution system.
