Jackman told Barbados TODAY the water, which had risen as much as three feet in his bar and kitchen, damaged refrigerators, stoves, furniture and newly purchased clothes stored on the premises.

Jackman complained that the damage done to his appliances would lead to loss of earnings since he would not be able to offer his Saturday dish of pudding and souse to his regular customers.

In addition, Jackman said he would not be able to cater to his customers who come to his bar on Friday and Saturday night to enjoy refreshments.

Tenant Henderson Bennett, who runs a repair shop on the premises, was also affected with several pieces of equipment receiving water damage.

Henderson Bennett identifies the damage done to his workshop at Rogers Road, the Ivy.
