Flooding caused chaos on roads across the Corporate Area on Sunday night as heavy rain continued to sweep across the island.

The downpour left masses of mud, boulders and debris on the streets which made it challenging for motorists and their vehicles, some of which became stuck and had to be abandoned.

Among the badly affected areas in Kingston and St Andrew are the Harbour View main road, Maxfield Avenue, Hagley Park Road and sections of downtown Kingston.

The flooding has been as a result of extensive rainfall being produced by a trough that the Met Office said has been lingering in the area and influencing rainfall all weekend.

The system is expected to continue to produce rainy weather at least into Monday.
