Just a little inconvenience for me but JA has been devastated particular in St Bess, Clarendon and Manchester.
There is damage in all of the coastal parishes and Portland in the NE.
Nuff nuff destruction in St Bess including parts of Munroe College.
Dawg nyam our suppa in the supermarket.
I never lost electricity.
The wind was rough but we didn’t even lose power. Water has been on and off and we lost cable and internet until a few minutes ago.
The supermarkets around here were open today.
JA mash up real bad but not as much as we expected here
in Kingston and St Andrew. That said thousands of peeps have lost everything.

Glad you're ok many aren't. Family there is ok too but some still without power and even water.
Yard will take some time to return to normal for many. Who can have to do what they can to help out

Happy you are back and kicking.
Yes it could have been worse but I expected the southern belt to suffer and it has and the pics I saw
of Treasure Beach breaks my heart....an old stomping...it really hurts.
Glad though that there was not many if any loss of life...Yard folks will rebound after the suffering and
it could be easier with solid intervention by the Pols.
Take care.

Glad you made it through ok. Commiserations to the people who lost property. I saw crazy videos of people trying to save their roofs and zinc sheets, don't know how authentic those were but if they were, I hope no one lost their life doing that.

Fi true. I had mere inconvenience for a few hours. Others will never recover.
Some serious damage. Now we’re trying to find eleven fishermen who were due home on Tuesday.

South coast mash up, according to people on the ground, but as you know Jamaica begins and ends with Kingston!

Glad you did well sis, as bad as it was we all know it could've been much worse. RIP to the fallen and best wishes and a speedy recovery to those who have suffered injuries and losses, hope there will be meaningful assistance to those in need.
