Jamaica untouched so farWith news that Jamaica’s weather system has been downgraded from a Hurricane to a Tropical Storm, there is certainly relief today

that the island will be spared harsh weather effects.

Speaking on the Power Breakfast show on Power 102.1FM this morning, Power 106FM Jamaica correspondent, Dervand Malcolm said

while tropical storm conditions were predicted, the island has not been affected in any major way.

Meanwhile, Haiti braced for a brutal beating early this morning as Hurricane Matthew slowly closed in on the Caribbean nation.

At 5 a.m. ET Monday, the Category 4 hurricane was plodding along at about 9 mph as the eye of the storm approached southwest

Haiti, the National Weather Service said. Matthew was expected to either make landfall or skirt the Haitian coast sometime after
