Jamaica has been experiencing an ongoing cold front, and conditions intensified on Tuesday, with strong winds affecting the waves. Sections of Ocho Rios have been impacted by flooding due to large waves caused by strong winds, and multiple footages surfaced online showing areas submerged in seawater.

The videos show an area completely flooded and other areas littered with branches and boards. More videos show parked damaged vehicles, a car that was even up a flight of stairs, and the raging waves hitting the shoreline and spilling over onto the land.
