Clean-up efforts in Montego Bay are now on in earnest after the city was ravaged by flood waters on Tuesday.

Mayor of Montego Bay Homer Davis said several trucks, bobcats, and backhoes have been deployed to effect the clean-up of the city.

“We currently have 17 trucks, five backhoes and two bobcats cleaning the drains and the main thoroughfares in order to restore normalcy by Saturday afternoon,” Davis told Jamaica Observer's Auto magazine yesterday.

“Our focus now is getting the city returned to normalcy and we are working up to midnight (Thursday) in order to get as much done as possible,” the mayor continued.

Up to press time, major roads including St James Street and Union Street were still blocked with debris brought on by the floods.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness led a team of Government officials and technical personnel from the National Works Agency (NWA) on a tour in sections of Montego Bay, St James, yesterday.
