Mandeville roads flooded
MANCHESTER, Jamaica — Several roads in Mandeville are flooded due to heavy and persistent rainfall associated with a trough affecting the island.
Among the roads flooded are Ward Avenue, deCarteret Road, Villa Road, Newleigh Road, Grove Road and Manchester Road.
Mayor of Mandeville Donovan Mitchell is advising citizens to avoid the flooded areas.
“I want to use this opportunity to ask the people to stay home if they don’t have to traverse the street,” he said during an interview at Ward Avenue.
“… We have realised what is the problem here (Ward Avenue) and a part from the fact that silt has developed along the area causing the blockage. There is an area that we need to have access which we are impeded, because of some issues,” he added.
