Jamaica: Gov’t To Tweak Flood Budget

As torrential rains continue to lash Jamaica, the Government is considering a reallocation of funds for its flood bill that was tabled in Parliament last week.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness made the announcement at Wednesday’s handover of tablets to Seaward Primary School in his St Andrew West Central constituency.

Holness said that another assessment would have to be done by next week, which would probably result in an update of previous calculations.

The prime minister had indicated last week that the damage caused by Tropical Storm Zeta, which drenched the island, stood at more than $2 billion.
