2012-10-23 22:25:42 | with audio | (0 Comments)
Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller is appealing to Jamaica to take very seriously the threat of Tropical Storm Sandy.
SIMPSON MILLER.... If you are still on the cays, please leave.
The Prime Minister arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston late this evening after cutting short her official visit to Canada.
She said she was particularly concerned that people are still on the Pedro Cays.
“If you are still on the cays, please leave,” Simpson Miller urged.
“We will accept no responsibility if people ignore the warnings and the appeal for persons to get off the cays.”
She says if people need help they should call immediately.
