Hurricane Beryl in Jamaica

Hurricane Beryl hit Jamaica on the 3 July bring heavy winds and rainfall. After having battered islands in the eastern Caribbean - killing at least seven people. The storm brought life-threatening winds of up to 130 mph (215 km/h) on to Jamaica's southern coast.

Hurricane Beryl became the earliest hurricane on record to develop into a category four storm, meaning its winds and sea surges were catastrophic, as warming oceans fuelled destruction across the south-eastern Caribbean.Floodwater poured down streets, while roofs were ripped off by the wind. Parts of Jamaica experienced disruption to power and electricity supplies. So far, it has been confirmed that one person has died after a tree fell on their home.

The storm has now weakened to category 2 and has moved on to southern Mexico.
