Jamaica: Motorists Urged To Drive With Caution Amid Flooding, Landslides And Fallen Trees

As the country continues to experience persistent rainfall, the National Works Agency (NWA) is warning motorists that driving conditions along several roadways may become an issue.

According to NWA Communication and Customer Services Manager, Stephen Shaw, there have so far been reports of flooding, landslides, fallen trees and rockfalls along roadways in St Andrew and St Thomas.

He says he expects these incidences to increase as the island continues to be affected by the inclement weather.  

The agency says it is currently involved in a joint operation with the Jamaica Fire Brigade in responding to a situation in Shooters Hill, St Andrew where an embankment has fallen onto a house.
