ODPEM Doing All to Protect Eastern Parishes, Vaz

Projections are that the Eastern end of Jamaica will experience the most severe weather conditions associated with Hurricane Matthew.

West Portland, MP, Daryl Vaz says all work at the constituency level has been done in preparation.

Mr. Vaz says he has paid an impromptu visit to the parish council in the parish to brief himself on the level preparation.

Mr. Vaz says he’s been assured by Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management, ODPEM and the Local Government Ministry that emergency management services in the parish are fully operational.

The West Portland MP says he has moved to have people in low lying areas in Portland to evacuate.
