Saturday October 30, 2010 found the Rep experiencing with his constituents, the raving force of hurricane Tomas.
Come Sunday morning Bousquet was up and running with a group of volunteers, touring every community to see first hand the damage which persons had suffered and offering what ever help was needed – clearing roads, drains etc.
It was clear that the constituency has suffered major damage, roads were blocked, landslides were everywhere, and roofs were blown off. Major slides could be seen in the Village, Victoria, Saltibus, Jetrine, Daban, Morne Jacques and Roblot. Drains were clogged with debris and almost every where huge trees had fallen across the roadway.
Seeing first hand the damage done, Bousquet had to report to his colleagues on his assessment of the damage and what relief would be forthcoming to his people. But wait! All forms of communications were down; the roads to Castries were impassable.
