Jamaica Tropical Storm 2012: Precautions taken by people
Jamaica Tropical Storm 2012 is ahead while people stocked up supplies and reinforce roofs ahead of the disaster.
The tropical storm s expected to hit the Caribbean island of posh resorts and sprawling shantytowns as a hurricane with lashing rain and wind.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said the strengthening storm was churning over warm Caribbean waters and should reach Jamaica on Wednesday, most likely as a Category 1 hurricane.
The late-season storm is expected to travel from south to north over the island, which local meteorologists say hasn’t sustained a direct hit from a hurricane’s eye since powerful Hurricane Gilbert in 1988.
