“Investigations are underway to determine the cause. The areas affected by this problem may include: in St Michael – Wildey, Pine, Collymore Rock, Flag Staff, Bonnetts, Brittons [Hill], Forde’s Road and surrounding areas. In Christ Church – Vauxhall, Sargeant’s Village, Fort George Heights, Upton, Clapham, Regency Park, St David’s, Sheraton Park, Elizabeth Park, South Ridge, Graeme Hall and surrounding areas.
