President Irfaan Ali proclaimed that the floods across Guyana have reached the stage of a national disaster and crisis.

In a gazette proclamation of the floods as a national disaster, it was noted that 28,228 households have been affected by flooding in all ten administrative regions.

Some of those households have seen water entering the homes, while in other cases domestic animals and livestock have been left in distress while farmlands have been inundated.
