“Trough” hits JA, widespread flooding


It rained for over 24 hours. Much of the island was flooded, and schools were closed in Kingston. The Prime Minister enacted emergency procedures. He was off the island until late yesterday but apparently took control of the situation on his return. These are pictures from some community journalists I am working with on a project from different parishes. They have been documenting the damage caused by the rain. It is still raining today, although it is a light drizzle.
