As Tropical Storm Sandy moves towards the island yesterday the Jamaica Observer took to the streets of Montego Bay to find out what kind of preparations citizens were making for the storm.

Winsome Spence: student

I have not made any preparations, I don't have any money to buy anything. I am a student.

Michael Black: DJ

So far mi just full up some containers with water and make sure mi charge up my phone. Mi have some tinned mackerel and rice so I should be okay.

Lance Wauchope: security guard

I am not preparing. I never prepare for no hurricane. Whenever they arrive I will always survive.

Jayden Wilson: student

Mi buy up everything........ flour, can things, water. Because me think the hurricane a go come.

Sasha Perkins: unemployed

I am not prepared. I am unemployed and so I have no money to buy the things I want.

Tiora Grant: merchandiser

I am well-prepared for Tropical Storm Sandy. I bought groceries but I am yet to baton up my windows and doors.



Do you think an increase in JUTC bus fares is justified at this time?
