Motorists had to drive with extra care on Monday as heavy rains sparked floods and caused debris pile-up along some major thoroughfares in the Corporate Area.

Spanish Town Road, Marcus Garvey Drive and the Chesterfield main road were among the roadways that became littered with debris, forcing the police to issue an afternoon advisory urging drivers to proceed with caution.

The situation appeared worse on Molynes Road, with a video circulating online purportedly showing vehicles partially submerged in floodwaters on that street in St Andrew. See the footage below.
