Flash flooding and mudslides anticipated as Beryl moves away from Jamaica

The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) late Wednesday said that flash flooding and mudslides are likely for Jamaica, as Hurricane Beryl moves away from the island.

For approximately six hours Hurricane Beryl battered Jamaica, with the parishes on the eastern and southern ends of the island bearing the brunt of the storm.

In its 11 p.m. update the NHC said that the eye of the storm had passed the Kingston area at around 4:00 p.m. and that the system continued to move west northwest at a speed of 21 mphs.

According to the NHC, there remains uncertainty in the track and intensity forecast of Beryl over the western Gulf of Mexico this weekend.
