Jamaica – Hurricane Matthew

04 October, 2016

The designated operator of Jamaica, Jamaica Post, asks us to inform the designated operators of other Union member countries that its operations have been suspended as a result of the adverse weather conditions associated with the imminent passage of Hurricane Matthew.

Consequently, the acceptance/collection and delivery of all mail categories will not be possible, owing to flooded road networks disrupting commuting and general transportation island-wide.

The situation is being monitored in conjunction with national stakeholders, the meteorological services and the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM). Information will thus be forwarded for onward dissemination.

Jamaica Post thanks designated operators for their understanding and cooperation.
