PORTLAND, Jamaica — The National Works Agency (NWA) has advised that the main road from Wakefield to Hardwar Gap at Silver Hill in Portland is blocked.

This is due to a landslide, caused by rainfall in the area.

The agency also said that Irish Town Road in St Andrew is again impassable at 12 Miles. The corridor was yesterday blocked by a landslide, which was cleared.

“We are mobilising equipment to address both situations,” NWA informed on social media.
