SVG: PM estimates EC$300M needed for Hurricane Beryl recovery in Southern Grenadines

Prime Minister of St Vincent, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, says it will cost the government an estimated EC$300 million to repair and rebuild houses damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Beryl when it hit the Southern Grenadines last week. 

Unofficial estimates say that more than 95 per cent of buildings were affected by the category 4 storm.

Dr Gonsalves said the figure was based on rough calculations, as the assessment was still incomplete.
