Comments: Report per poster on stormcarib.com: It was the strangest day and storm here in Barbican, Kingston. Gentle rain and NO wind for most of the day. Then wind and almost no rain for about two hours. The bamboo went down with loud pops and now several houses are in view which normally are hidden. Ackee, Mango and Breadfruit trees lost limbs and leaves. Then came an hour of hurricane winds from the NW and driving rain finding spaces between louvres and under doors. Finally the wind gentled and switched around to the SW and now we are experiencing only intermittent gusty showers. It was better than expected where we were and hopefully not too much damage elsewhere. Glad to see you go 'Sandy'.
