riverreadyIn the old days, the Constitution River would have been overflowing even into the bus terminal, when it rained heavily or at high tide. It would have been especially problematic for it to facilitate the volume of water rushing through the shallow canal if Tropical Storm Chantal had “inflicted” her full fury on Barbados.
