Eyes on Matthew
Hurricane Matthew has been threatening Jamaica for more than a day now. Forecasters say it is strong and could dump lots of water on the country, enough to cause total destruction to property and threaten lives.
But Hurricane Matthew has been slow in coming and so many Jamaicans are taking its approach lightly. They make fun of it on social media. One man, tongue-in-cheek, said he spent a lot in preparation and wanted his money's worth of hurricane. But others are taking it seriously and the necessary precautions as well. Some of the flooding that we have seen so far prove that they are sensible.
Here are some pictures taken across the island.
