Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced potential relief for farmers and others impacted by recent heavy rains in Portland. Following his visit to affected areas in the parish, Holness expressed concern for the agricultural losses incurred. The National Works Agency (NWA) has secured a contract to address the causes of the floods. Last December, the Negro River Bridge in Moore Town raised safety concerns, documented by CVM News. Holness hinted at a possible relief package for affected industries, emphasizing broader efforts to safeguard the local economy. Last year, Portland faced similar challenges, including landslides, power outages, and infrastructure damage.
