Corporate Communications Manager at the National Works Agency, NWA, Stephen Shaw says several roadways in the Eastern Section of Jamaica have been rendered impassible.

Shaw explained that St. Thomas, which he says has a history of landslides, has been adversely affected by Tropical Storm Grace.

Shaw noted that the NWA took decisive action to close the Bog Walk Gorge due to fear of a possible overflow of the Rio Cobre.

He explained that his team had to act quickly.

Mr. Shaw says accidents along flat bridge usually occur during heavy rainfall.
