Prime Minister Andrew Holness has returned to the island after an official visit to the Dominican Republic, cutting short his visit as a result of the heavy rains that have battered the island over the past two days.

 

 

Press secretary at the Office of the Prime Minister Naomi Francis made the disclosure at a press briefing at Jamaica House yesterday where the media was updated on the impact of the inclement weather on the country.

 

She said Holness will tour flood-affected areas of the country today.

 

Jamaica has, since Saturday evening, been experiencing persistent heavy rainfall, which has severely affected sections of St Elizabeth, St Thomas, Kingston and St Andrew, St Catherine, Clarendon, Manchester, Westmorland, St Mary, Portland and St Ann.

 

There have been severe infrastructural and agricultural damage, dislocation and major inconvenience, especially for students who are sitting exit secondary examinations.
