Jamaica was spared the wrath of Hurricane Irma, the powerful cyclone which recently rendered the small island of Barbuda uninhabitable.

But though the storm, now a Category 4 hurricane did not impact Jamaica directly, portions of the island are reportedly experiencing heavy rains as a result of its passage through the region.

The Meteorological Service of Jamaica today stated that a trough is currently across the island as a result of Hurricane Irma to the north.

The Met Service says the trough is expected to remain in the vicinity of Jamaica for the remainder of the weekend.

Periods of showers and thunderstorms are expected to affect sections of the island through to Sunday.

Irma has claimed at least 25 lives across the Caribbean and is expected to pummel Florida where it is projected to make landfall on Sunday.
