by February 27th, 2016

A freak storm at the fishing beach in Discovery Bay, St. Ann, yesterday (February 26) damaged about 10 shops.

The roof of a bath house owned by the Red Cross was also lifted during the storm.

Councillor for the Dry Harbour Division Arthur Clemetson, says persons along the fishing beach reported hearing strange sounds before the wind reached them.

Mr. Clemetson says approximately three of the bigger shops lost their roofing.

He says the affected beach area is being cleaned up, after debris was left everywhere in the wake of the freak storm.
