Devastation in Saint Ann

Early last Thursday heavy rains that started the previous day forced a path of destruction along Milford Road, causing massive road damage and heavy soil erosion, resulting in tons of mud being deposited downtown Ocho Rios.

Businesses along a stretch of the road as well as the primary and high schools were forced to close following the flood damage, and up to yesterday several business places remained closed.

This is very sobering. We know that Nature does not play

Hey thanks for posting these pics..they are a lot better than the ones I posted. I can't believe it's SOOO bad! St. Ann is like my second home, it makes my heart break to see it like that.

Tee, it is indeed sad. I love Ochi as well. I can't imagine what the community is going through. It seems that Jamaica has its battles with nature. I just hope the children can go back to school soon.

oh dear! It makes me remember the torrential rains we had about a month ago when 2 people died carried away by the floods over here in Mauritius.
