Hurricane Beryl leaves trail of devastation in St Elizabeth, Jamaica


(Jamaica Observer) – Member of Parliament for Southwest St Elizabeth, Floyd Green, says that Hurricane Beryl, a category four storm that swept across Jamaica on Wednesday, has left many residents in the parish completely devastated.

Heavy rains and strong winds caused significant damage, rendering many roads impassable due to fallen trees and leaving numerous homes without roofs.

“It’s a really tough situation,” Green posted to social media. “I have already been in touch with the National Works Agency in relation to clearing the roads to ensure that we can move around the community. Already JPS has been made aware of the light poles that are down and they are just waiting on the all-clear to be able to go out and start that work.”
