KINGSTON, Jamaica — Storm surge battering houses at Caribbean Terrace in east Kingston has turned into an attraction for the curious.

Dozens have now converged on the southern end of the residential community to watch huge waves from Hurricane Sandy rummage through houses.

 

Onlookers sporting raincloaks and umbrellas, stared in awe as the sea exhibited its awesome power. 

At intervals the water inundated entire roadways in the seaside community.

A police team was on site ordering people to return to their homes and reminding onlookers that the area was still under curfew. 

However transfixed onlookers ignored the police's pleas as the huge waves crashed onshore. 

Hurricane Sandy, classified a category one, is now passing over the island.
