The Latest from Jamaica!


New Date for General Elections
I had promised you that this edition of MIJD would be giving the results of the general elections right?

Well, not quite so. Nature had other ideas (see 'Hurricane Dean Stikes' below) and we were forced to postpone it. The magic date is now September 3.

The feeling now (from reports last night) is that the Jamaica Labour Party may be edging slightly ahead, but we all know that many things can happen between now and Monday, September 3. Stay tuned!

By the way, if you have not yet done so, subscribe to the MIJD blog now and get the latest addition- as soon as I post it! Visit my Jamaica Blog page for more.

Hurricane Dean Strikes
The dangerous Category 4 hurricane, DEAN, thankfully passed south of the island, but not before some serious damage to the south-east. Dean caused great

damage in that area, particulary in St. Thomas- the hardest hit, and areas of Kingston. Visit my page on hurricane Dean here for a summary as well as pictures of some of the damage done.

Jamaica shines at World Championships in OSAKA, Japan!

Jamaica continues to haul in the medals at the world championships today. [Oh, how we love athletics]

The latest additions to the net came from quarter-miler Novlene Williams and sprint hurdler Delloreen Ennis-London who both secured bronze medals on the fourth day of competition and from Usain Bolt who secured a silver in the 200 meters yesterday at the 11th IAAF World Championships at the Nagai Stadium.
