The Ministry of Education has advised that schools in the Montego Bay area affected by severe flooding yesterday should remain closed.

Education Minister Ruel Reid has advised parents and school administrators to continue paying close attention to releases from the Met Service and assess where it is safe for children and adults to use the roadways.

The ministry says while the rains have abated, there is a lot of mud on the streets making it difficult for pedestrians and vehicular traffic to move around.
