Tropical Storm Harvey Being Monitored By ODPEM, Met Office
The Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) has warned that Jamaica’s weather conditions may deteriorate over the weekend, as a result of Tropical Storm Harvey.
Harvey is expected to pass well south of the island between Sunday and Monday.
ODPEM says though it is not predicted that Jamaica will experience Tropical Storm conditions, we may have poor sea conditions on the island’s south Coast, flooding in low lying areas, and landslides in hilly terrains.
ODPEM is encouraging residents to be ready to evacuate from low lying and flood prone areas and to avoid flooded waterways, i.e. fords, gullies, streams or rivers, either on foot or in vehicles.
“Jamaicans are advised to take the necessary precautions and continue to monitor credible media sources,” the release by ODPEM said.
The Met Service is forecasting that southern parishes could be in for some rains.
