A comprehensive geographic illustration by the Mona GeoInformatics Institute (MGI) of the recorded floods and landslides, as a result of the recent severe weather system that swept across Jamaica last week. Floods are represented by the blue dots and landslides are represented by red dots on the map.
This map also encapsulates the cumulative data for flood and landslide occurrences throughout 2023, that have been compiled from various government entities and verified media reports. It serves as a critical tool for understanding the geographical distribution of these natural hazard events and aids in coordinating mitigation relief and response strategies.
We invite you to explore MGI’s Online Natural Hazards Map of Jamaica which provides information to the general public on historical floods and landslides. It is free.
