Jamaica: ‘It Come Like A God A Come’ – Residents Say Damage In Eight Miles Unprecedented

Homes on edge, a truck held up by its fuel tank on the riverbank, and an uprooted utility pole resulting in a power outage.

It was a scene residents of Eight Miles in Bull Bay, St Thomas, said they have never seen before.

Severe weather associated with Tropical Storm Laura, the outer bands, pelted the parish on Sunday.

Scores of residents gathered at the Eight Miles bridge on Monday morning to view the damage caused by the roaring Cane River, which they said kept them up in the night.

Junior Gayle told The Gleaner that about 15 feet of the land on one of the riverbanks was eroded by flood waters.
