A BLOG-REPORT FROM JAMAICA: “We are currently being affected by the outer bands of Dean,and we’ve been having moderate rain and slight breezes since 8:00 p.m. last night. . . . Electricity which was supposed to have been shut down at 10:00 a.m this morning will be shut down later and the water supply will be shut down, soon after that. (This is to spare the equipment from damage.) Also, in the case of Jamaica Public Service (JPS): electricity, is also being shut down to prevent electricity from being in lines that will be downed by the hurricane – that could cause injury and loss of life.”
