It is a strange occurrence to Trinbagonians when on waking one morning we find that a portion of our land has begun to sink. A large area that was level the day before had sunken significantly. Bois canot, coconut, mango and other trees still remained standing—but at a lower level. After some time, the land dropped still further—by as much as 25 feet in some places.  A clean drop in the earth entailing a block 200 feet long by 25 feet wide, and more in some places.
