Some 150 people still in shelters following passage of Hurricane Beryl

Local Government Minister Desmond McKenzie
By Nakinskie Robinson  
 
Some 150 people  remain in shelters almost a week after hurricane Beryl passed over the island.
 
This update was given by Minister of Local Government, Desmond McKenzie while speaking with Radio Jamaica News.
 
Minister McKenzie says the occupied shelters are predominantly located acrossthe southern section of the island, which was most affected by the weather system.
 
He says the ministry is working to meet the relief demands of those in need.
 
"Those shelters, you know, as soon as we do an assessment to see what the conditions of those persons are, then we will make a determination. But we still have shelters that are active and those shelters will be open as long as there is a need for persons to occupy those shelters." 
 
Minister McKenzie said an evaluation will be done to determine the individuals who require significant government support.
 
"A lot of those who are there, [their] homes have been damaged or partially or fully destroyed. The team, the police department and the disaster coordinators are now presently doing an assessment of the various individuals who have been working with the Ministry of Labour. Once that assessment has been done, then we will make a determination as to how we proceed," he noted, adding that the needs assessment should be completed by the weekend. 
 
The Ministry of Labour and Social Security, which is working alongside the Local Government Ministry to provide support, indicated that more than 90 per cent of shelters have been deactivated.
