Live Pictures from
Hurricane Dean in Jamaica
Hurricane Dean struck us on the evening of Sunday, August 19, 2007, a day that will be remembered for a long time for many of us Jamaicans.
Although the dangerous category four storm spared the nation the full extent of its wrath- as its eye passed some 50 miles off the south coast- after threatening a direct hit, major damage was done on the south eastern end of the island, with great loss of property and even some deaths.
The parish of St. Thomas was the hardest hit and it claimed the first loss of life reported-a 14 year old girl who was hit by a building block that became a missile in the raging storm. It flew through her window and hit her in her sleep.
Again, we have much to be grateful for, considering the earlier prediction of a direct hit.
Thanks to my online community and friends, I have compiled an album of pictures so you can get an idea of what transpired.
