The Bog Walk Gorge, St. Catherine has been closed as sections of the road are now flooded.

The National Works Agency says the police have been asked to monitor the area to ensure that all persons are outside the Gorge and the gates closed.

The flooding has been caused by heavy rainfall in sections of St. Mary and St. Catherine over the past 24 hours.

In the meantime, the main road from Lewisburg to Freetown in St. Mary is now impassable as a result of landslides.

The NWA says it has mobilised a team to respond early tomorrow.

The main road from Stettin to Highgate Hall in Trelawny that was earlier this afternoon blocked by landslides has now been opened to single lane traffic.

The road was blocked in the community of Wait-a-bit.
