Heavy Rains Close Jamaica and Bahamas Offices
September 29, 2010
September 29, 2010. Seaboard’s offices in both Montego Bay and Kingston, Jamaica as well as Nassau, Bahamas are unexpectedly closed today due to continued heavy rains throughout Jamaica and the Bahamian Islands. Many of the roads near the Ports of Kingston and Montego Bay as well as the downtown area of Nassau are flooded and impassable. Tropical Storm Nicole, centered near Central Cuba, is causing these heavy rains in the Western Caribbean but is expected to move northward later today. As a result of this improving forecast, we expect that all of our Jamaican and Bahamian facilities will be able to safely re-open tomorrow, September 30. If you need further information, please contact Seaboard Marine’s Miami office at 305-863-4742.
