St. James Municipal Corporation Plans for Early Flood Warning System

first_imgAs part of its disaster-preparedness strategy, the St. James Municipal Corporation is seeking to establish an early flood-warning system in Montego Bay, aimed at providing advanced information on flooding.In an interview with JIS News, Mayor of Montego Bay and Chairman of the St. James Municipal Corporation, Councillor Homer Davis, said the system “will alert citizens and business operators when a flood is imminent for Montego Bay”.The Mayor emphasised that the system is needed, as Montego Bay, being a coastal town, is easily inundated during heavy rains.Councillor Davis said the projected cost to implement the system is $10 million, and preliminary consultation has commenced with various stakeholders regarding the project.“It is a work in progress, and that is something we are hoping to get the necessary funding for, because it is an expensive system. We are probably looking at seven to 10 million dollars, but it will be money well spent,” he added.He pointed out that documents are being prepared in order to approach international funding agencies for grant assistance.“The Inter-American Development Bank is interested in climate change; the Canadian Government is interested in climate change. So we are presently putting that document together, so we can begin to pursue grant funding to do this project,” the Mayor outlined.In the meantime, the Mayor told JIS News that he welcomes plans by the Government to commission an engineering company to assess the city’s drains, with a view to improving them.last_img read more

Gianfranco Zola sympathises with Eden Hazards frustrations

first_imgChelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola claims that even though Eden Hazard may not be known for his industry off the ball, Chelsea still needs him to assist the team.The Belgium winger hasn’t really impressed in all his outing this term after he was deployed by new coach Sarri to play as a false nine.Chelsea defeated Tottenham 2-1 on penalties to reach the EFL Cup final on Thursday with Hazard scoring the Blues’ second goal in a second leg.“I was very much like Eden,” Zola told reporters, according to FourFourTwo.“I was a very positive player, I liked to move around the pitch, find the spots on the pitch where I could receive the ball, turn and make the damage to the opposition.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“I was very, very similar and I do understand that. I believe we try to give him this but also to be an organised team defensively and offensively. Especially offensively. That’s why we ask Eden sometimes to put himself about in working hard.“I know that’s not his best quality. We understand that sometimes he needs to be fresh when he receives the ball. There is no doubt that we are on the same page. We want to find a common ground where he can get the best out of himself and the team can benefit from him.“Not only when he is scoring goals but when we have moments in the game where we need everybody to defend and everybody to press. That’s exactly what we are trying to do. Eden, I think, I have to be fair that he has been doing it.“He has been trying to do it. We are very demanding because we want to do it all the time. I am sure that we will find a compromise. I am not in a position to criticise a player like Eden. We believe, Maurizio said one thing, that the potential of Hazard is greater than the performances.“So he is not criticising what Eden is doing but he believes he can do much more for himself and the team. That’s all he is saying. This is the situation he wants Hazard to understand. Again, when we see his performances we look forward to seeing more and more.”last_img read more
