Christmas Ruined in Eastern Caribbean

Nice weather is associated with Christmas in the Caribbean but not during Christmas 2013 for people in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dominica and St. Lucia where lives were lost in all three nations due to torrential rain, wind and floods. The inclement weather also spoiled Christmas for many people in Trinidad & Tobago and Grenada.

Eight persons died in St. Vincent and the total for all three island-nations can go beyond fifteen.
The weather also spoiled Christmas vacation for nationals residing in Canada, the UK and USA who returned to their respective islands to spend Christmas with family and friends.
