Meanwhile, Mayor of St Ann’s Bay, Micheal Belnavis, said the municipal corporation continues to render assistance to affected areas.

The Meteorological Service of Jamaica says a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for low lying and flood prone areas of all parishes.

The Met Service says the Stationary Front just east of Jamaica continues to produce unstable weather conditions.

It says the Front is expected to linger for another three days.
