      So God don’t care for the people who call upon it?

    • @DonGloJean Tzar Are you kidding me? What kind of question is this? Maybe your GOD is telling them to move.

      @Justice not mine, that spoken of God is always working after the fact. So whenever there is anything positive the God is credited. The person said that the sea belongs to God, so i wonder what was the God doing when there is a sea disaster.

    • @DonGloJean Tzar People have the right to believe what they want. However, common sense is something you need to have in the real world to survive. I understand the land is more than likely captured, but it should not take away from them seeing the result, and it does not look good. Eventually, some of these people will be washed away by the monster of the ocean.

      All of us are screwed then since we live on a island. The goverment should have built a sea wall to protect communities that are close to the sea.

    So sorry to hear of such situation. For this reason all on the island needs to be reminded that all is living in the middle of the sea and should live in harmony with each other. May God help the island

    May Our GOD guide and protect you all. The government has to move faster, a life cannot be replaced.

      The government? Why is it that every single issue in Jamaica, the government must do something? If someone gets flooded, the government. If there is a landslide, the government. Where is the government getting the money to do something about all these things? The US and UK wouldn’t even have enough money to fix all the problems in Jamaica, much less the Jamaican government. I wonder if these people pay land tax at all? Where is the government going to get the money “to move faster”?

    You guys are too brave. Building houses in the sea?

  12. My advice is relocated don’t wait on government I know it’s hard but money can’t buy life

  13. Well the bible says the sea and river will take back it’s course , the bible must fulfill

    Here are 12 important questions and answers before considering getting vaccinated:
    “If I get vaccinated can I stop wearing a mask(s)?” Government: “NO”
    “If I get vaccinated will the restaurants, bars, schools, fitness clubs, hair salons, etc. reopen and will people be able to get back to work like normal? Government: “NO”
    “If I get vaccinated will I be resistant to Covid?” Government: “Maybe. We don’t know exactly, but probably not.”
    “If I get vaccinated, at least I won’t be contagious to others – right?” Government: “NO. the vaccine doesnโ€™t stop transmission.”
    “If I get vaccinated, how long will the vaccine last?” Government: “No one knows. All Covid “vaccines” are still in the experimental stage.”
    “If I get vaccinated, can I stop social distancing?” Government: “NO”
    “If my parents, grandparents and myself all get vaccinated can we hug each other again?” Government: “NO”
    “So, what’s the benefit of getting vaccinated?” Government: “Hoping that the virus won’t kill you.”
    “Are you sure the vaccine won’t injure or kill me?” Government: “NO”
    “If statistically the virus won’t kill me (99.7% survival rate), why should I get vaccinated “Government: “To protect others.”
    “So, if I get vaccinated, I can protect 100% of people I come in contact with” Government: “NO”
    “If I experience a severe adverse reaction, long term effects (still unknown) or die from the vaccine will I (or my family) be compensated from the vaccine manufacturer or the Government” Government: “NO – the government and vaccine manufacturers have 100% zero liability regarding this experimental drug”

    • Each have to decide for themself, after considering their answer.

    • So ppl be wise , use wisdom do not take the vaccine it’s not benefiting you it’s just putting more money in the government pockets , Be WiSE

  15. Sorry to hear about those ppl situation. However, I want to ask a ? .Didn’t they know if live so close to the sea, this is what will happen. The safest thing is for them to move, the longer they stay the more the situation becomes unsafe.

    Only fools will build their houses on the river banks and on the sea shore.., but the wise build their houses on the rocks(Hill’s).

      I hope you know that you live on a island. If the goverment dosnt adress the rising sea levels JA will continue to lose more land to the sea, then you’re only going to have that house on that house on the hill.

      @Rolando Walcott God made the land and the sea… The land was risen a little above the sea so none would be an enemy to any… But if foolish mankind go and dump the sea then erect buildings into the sea and then demolish the hills for highways and byways, then as is written in the good book, the sea and rivers will take back their space in these the latter days. The sea, lakes and rivers were meant to housed fish and other creatures specifically seems fit for human consumption, not for dumping and building houses and highways whilst intentionally destroying the meats made for humans. That is where and when famine will come on stream. For killing and savagely hunting the meats and poisoning the God made fruits and the crops on of the land will all automatically invite hunger and death to many fools doors…. How can it be that all focus are based on crime, violence, nids and their stupid vaccines which are intended to form their evil mark, and not the cultivation of more crops to feed the nation. Are you people still in the dark and still depending upon the destructive powers of those governmental leaders. For to be wise is to live but to keeps on being a fool will only bring oneself death.

      @Rolando Walcott An experience person will always teacheth true wisdom, but the wicked will hide true knowledge from the fools. For ships and boats were made to sail on the waters of the sea and docked on the sand of the shore.

    You made the decision to live near the ocean and now the ocean is eroding your homes and you don’t want to move and you’re complaining? Are you serious? Move! Nobody held a gun to your head and told you you had to live there. Move!
