Fonds-Verrettes, fearful story to its ravines

In Fonds-Verrettes the ravines are flat, with water running through which makes it a tempting place for the residents to live in. However, the residents of Fonds-Verrettes have a fearful story attached to the ravines. The area is prone to storms and lethal storm waters from the mountains flow through the ravines. A devastating storm happened in 2004 in Hurricane Georges when storm waters washed through leaving 680 locals dead and several others homeless. The cost of these floods is being felt even to date and the town is now growing away from the path of the storm waters.
