Some fishermen across the country have begun preparations in light of the approaching weather system.

The Meteorological Office has advised all small craft operators, including fishers from the cays and banks, to arrive in port, to start preparations for safe harbour at this time.

This, as it says tropical depression #9 is expected to move closer to Jamaica’s south-western coastline as a tropical storm on Sunday.

The Met Office adds that Jamaica and its territorial waters should begin to feel the impacts of the tropical depression, as early as midday tomorrow, with an increase in showers and gusty winds.
