Dominica Farmer Says Landslides Destroyed Crops Pauline Ngunjiri Conway Anthony, a Dominica farmer Conway Anthony, a Dominica farmer, who has sold his farm produce at the Charlestown market for the past 20 years said Tuesday that crops on some farms were extensively damaged by landslides when Tropical Storm Erika hit his country. His crop was not affected as he lives above sea level. He also said he did not lose any family member as they all live in areas that are above sea level. Erika caused floods and mudslides that have set the country back 20 years, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit is on record saying. Erika dumped 15 inches of rain on Dominica destroying hundreds of homes, bridges and roads. Anthony said Erika dumped more rain than predicted: “They told us we should expect three or four inches of rain but when it came, it was eight inches. All the rivers burst open and took away 40 per cent of the bridges. People lost lives. We still have a lot of people we cannot find.” He said he had sailed on MV Henry into the Federation on Monday on time for the market day in Nevis, Anthony told the Observer. Asked what urgent supplies were required, he listed water, clothing and food as the priority.
