Comments: Poster from stormcarib.com in Jamaica stated the following: Raining on and off last night. So far the intermittent rain squalls that various parts of the island have experienced yesterday including Kingston and Portland have caused so much flooding with the storm so far away and the waves being so big as early as Saturday sending debris onto roads and even the area out past the airport strip road had to be closed!! I donít recall storm surges coming so early before a storm nor such heavy rains so early.
