Mayor of Falmouth, Councillor Colin Gager, says much of the flooding in the parish is due to blocked drains.

A number of areas in north Trelawny have been flooded as a result of the cold front.

These include Perth Town, Martha Brae, Bottom Town in Clarkes Town and Duncans.

Mayor Gager says the municipal corporation will be working with its partners to clear the drains.

Meanwhile, rafts owned by raftsmen from Rafters Village were washed away as a result of floodwaters from the Martha Brae River.

In the Long Pond area, a car with occupants aboard was submerged by floodwaters.

They managed to escape unhurt.
