Special Announcement re: International Coastal Cleanup Day in Jamaica, September 15

Primary tabs

It’s the height of hurricane season right now, and we are keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Isaac, which reached the eastern Caribbean today. I just heard that it will not affect Jamaica before late Saturday or early Sunday and that it may be weaker by that time. The center of the storm is likely to pass to the southwest of Jamaica. 
The Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) has just put out a notice. Based on today’s weather updates, it WILL BE going ahead with its main beach cleanup at the Palisadoes Go-Kart Track early on Saturday morning. Coordinators of the many other cleanups around the island can make their own decision as to whether to go ahead or postpone. An early start is advised!
You can check the latest on Isaac (and other storms moving around the region at the moment) at the National Hurricane Center website. Also, please check the Meteorological Service of Jamaica website for local updates. They are also on Twitter @MetserviceJA.
