As if a Cat 4 Hurricane Isn't Bad Enough (NEPA) Warns of Crocodiles in Flooded Areas

Jamaicans are being urged to look out for crocodiles which are likely to be displaced by activities associated with the passage of Hurricane Matthew, the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) has advised.

{xtypo_dropcap}T{/xtypo_dropcap}he Category 4 hurricane — down from Category 5 — is moving across the Caribbean on a path that could take it over Jamaica by Monday morning.

NEPA urged members of the public to be extremely cautious in areas close to swamps, wetlands and gullies, as crocodiles are likely to be displaced from their natural habitats during heavy rainfall.

The agency said crocodiles are likely to be seen in the following areas:

St Thomas: Albion, Cow Bay and Port Morant

Kingston: Seaview and Riverton City

Clarendon: Salt River, Mitchell Town, Portland Cottage, Rocky Point and Milk River

St Elizabeth: Parottee, Treasure Beach, Calabash Bay and Black River.

Can you guess the exact location of the following photo which was taken in Jamaica?
