arrow icon. A Journey to Flood Ravaged Guyana 
A waterline high on a red picket fence dramatically shows the height the floodwater reached at the New Hope Community just east of Georgetown. Georgetown is the capital of Guyana on the northeast cost of South America. Weeks after the late January flood, water still remains in this hardest hit area. As it slowly recedes, an awful odor comes up from the wet, soggy ground. Garbage is in piles on the ground along with the occasional bloated remains of a dead animal. Stray cattle pick at the rubbish.
