Some residents in St Thomas are still trapped as a result of the heavy rains. 

The roadway leading in and out of Golden Grove remains impassable due to flooding; while other roads in communities in eastern St Thomas, such as Font Hill, Johnson Mountain, Rowlands Field, Winter Forest and Cedar Valley remain impassable.

Residents of York were also forced to evacuate their homes as a result of the rains; while residents of Botany Bay also had their homes compromised by heavy waves caused by the inclement weather.

However, road blockages caused by the weekend rains in other areas have been cleared.

The authorities managed to clear debris caused by landslides that marooned residents of Spring Bank; while waters across flooded roads in some areas have receded.
