KINGSTON, Jamaica — Residents of Sandy Park in St Andrew today staged a protest to bring attention to a section of the Sandy Gully that has broken away threatening their homes
"For months we calling on the authorities to come and address the problem but it appears our calls are falling on deaf ears," said one man from the community.
The man was part of a group of residents who claimed that conditions along the gully wall worsened following heavy rains that lashed the island last week.
"We are in fear and are of the view that it is only after people in the community lose their lives that the authorities will do something about the problem," another resident declared.
The section of the gully wall that has broken away is near the back yard of a fair-sized house.
