Flash flood warning in effect for Jamaica until Thursday

The Meteorological Service of Jamaica has issued a flash flood Watch for low-lying and flood-prone areas of all parishes.

In a release on Tuesday the Met Service said a tropical wave currently located east of Jamaica is forecast to move across the island today producing increased rainfall through to Thursday.

Projections are for periods of moderate to heavy showers and thunderstorms to affect sections of most parishes, especially eastern and central parishes, beginning tonight and continuing through to Thursday evening.

Fishers and other marine operators are urged to exercise caution as sea conditions will deteriorate in the vicinity of showers, thunderstorms, and gusty winds.
