"Unfortunately, the part of the closed road is not accessible . . . . . . " Ward MP Mike Amoud in the area said he said the closure was necessary because the recent storms caused considerable damage to the roads in the area.
"The banks of the roads have begun to erode, which has led to flooding of houses in the area," Amod said . ".
"Municipalities have decided that for the safety of drivers it is better to take a proactive approach to start these emergency repairs rather than react after the road collapses," said Amod . ".
In another incident in Merrivale, the storm caused huge damage to the walls and cars of the residents.
Careen Seaward said the recent storm had a greater impact on her family than most.
"The storm was fierce.
Our dog is in pain and we are all depressed.
When I went out to check if the dog was OK, I saw some water coming in from our front door, so I went out and closed all the doors and windows.
At that moment my car alarm went off and I just turned it off assuming it was just a small disturbance as my car alarm sometimes rang randomly.
"My husband saw a roof on the hood of my car, but we couldn't go out and check because the storm was too big.
It was too dark when the storm passed . "
The next morning, Seawards found that it was not a small disturbance that caused the car alarm.
"Because our neighbors don't have a wall or anything in the yard, the water flowing from their garden is too stressful for our wall, which causes the wall to collapse.
"It collapsed on my car and broke the hood and window of the car, and the bumper of the car was torn off," Seaward said . ".
Seaward said the insurance inspector said it could take months to fix the wall and that her rather new 2013 Ford Figo could be canceled.
"The loss is very serious.
We don't know what to do if we encounter a bigger storm, because now our entire yard is exposed.
"There has been some flooding in our kitchen and in our lounge," said Seaward . ".
