We wish to advise persons served by the Mile Gully Primary School in Manchester that it is no longer being used as a shelter. The alternative facility, the Mile Gully Community Centre, will be opened.
The public is reminded that, under the National Shelter Programme, government-owned schools are designated as shelters.
Updates on other activated shelters will be sent out as soon as the ODPEM’s National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) receives them.
A Hurricane Warning remains in effect for Jamaica as weather conditions begin to deteriorate over sections of the country under the influence of Hurricane Dean. The progress of Hurricane Dean will continue to be closely monitored by the Meteorological Service of Jamaica and the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) and updates will be released to the public as soon as new information has been gathered.
