The National Works Agency (NWA) is reporting that a number of roadways in at least four parishes have been impacted by flooding, land slippages and fallen trees.

According to Communications Manager at the NWA, Stephen Shaw, Clarendon has again seen significant flooding.

Shaw says the flood-prone communities of Milk River, Lionel Town, Portland Cottage, Rocky Point, Toll Gate and Mineral Heights are among the hardest hit.

He says there have been reports of land slippages in Clarendon as well as in Portland and St Thomas.

Shaw says NWA crews have been out clearing blocked roads.
