Title

Yallahs fording

Description

"Where is the road? This is the Yallahs River in spate yesterday - a day and a half after Tuesday's torrential showers. The fording, which normally enable the scores of vehicles plying between Kingston and St. Thomas and through the Portland, is hardly visible behind the tuft of uprooted plants transported downstream by the savage waters. Vehicular traffic take an alternate route via Easington."
