KINGSTON, Jamaica — Education Minister Senator Ruel Reid is advising that schools in the Montego Bay, St James area that were affected by yesterday's severe flooding should remain closed today.

The minister, in a news release this morning, also advised parents and school administrators to continue paying close attention to releases from the Met Service and assess where it is safe for children and adults to use the roadways.

Indications are that while the rains have abated, there is a lot of mud on the streets making it difficult for pedestrians and vehicular traffic to move around.
