The Maritime Authority of Jamaica, MAJ, plans to institute a flag weather warning system with accompanying signs at seaport departure points.

MAJ Director General Rear Admiral Peter Brady said this will provide vessels with alerts on storm and wind conditions.

He was speaking to small passenger vessel operators, and he urged them to adhere to the safety requirements found in the Shipping Act and the harbour rules.

Vessel operators were also encouraged to ensure that their boats are in proper working condition.
