Vaz said while he appreciated the allocation, eastern parishes currently being battered by heavy rains would require even more help.

Member of Parliament for west Portland Daryl Vaz has appealed for help for eastern parishes in light of the continued heavy rains.

Vaz made the appeal as Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced that each constituency is to be allocated $10 million for road patching, de-bushing and general clean-up.

Vaz said while he appreciated the allocation, eastern parishes currently being battered by heavy rains would require even more help.

He predicted devastation in St Thomas, Portland, St Mary and Rural St Andrew in the coming days.
