#JamaicaGleaner JUNE 8, 2022: Days into the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season, residents of Weise Road in Bull Bay, St Andrew, are reiterating desperate pleas for the repair of a damaged culvert and the shoring up of the Chalky River with gabion baskets. They insist that the accidental excavation of a concrete bank at a section of the river is to blame for storm-induced floods that swamped the eastern Jamaica community over the last two years. The residents fear that the riverbanks, currently packed with dirt, could be breached should major flood rains pound Weise Road again.
