“We, as the local government authority, shall always use this historical experience as a lesson and reminder to warn and educate our citizens about proper building techniques and that they should not build in areas that are vulnerable to disaster. An ounce of prevention is better than a lifetime of pain,” he said.

Seismic Activities Jamaica is susceptible to seismic activities, which means that an earthquake can strike at any time.

In the event of an earthquake, the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM) is recommending that persons ‘Drop, Cover and Hold’.

This means persons should get low, go under a table or sturdy surface and cover the head and hold on
