Jamaica: Flash Flood Watch Remains In Place For All Parishes

The Meteorological Service has continued the flash flood watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of all parishes.

It remains in place until 5:00 p.m.

The met office says the tropical depression that is south of Jamaica has now developed into Tropical Storm Delta.

At 7:00 a.m., the centre of Tropical Storm Delta was located near latitude 16.4 degrees North, longitude 78.4 degrees West, or about 210 kilometres south of Negril, Jamaica.

Delta is moving toward the west-northwest near 15 km/h, and this general motion should continue for the next day or so.

A faster northwestward motion is expected on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On the forecast track, the centre of Delta is expected to move away from Jamaica later today, move near or over the Cayman Islands later tonight, and approach the Isle of Youth and western Cuba Tuesday afternoon or evening
