SHENSEEA LEADS RELIEF EFFORTS FOR ST. ELIZABETH AFTER HURRICANE BERYL'S DEVASTATION

Dancehall sensation Shenseea, originally from St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, is spearheading efforts to support residents in her hometown who have been devastated by Hurricane Beryl. St. Elizabeth was among the hardest-hit areas by the category 4 hurricane.

A video circulating on social media shows Shenseea, accompanied by her manager Romeich Major and the Romeich Entertainment team, loading supplies for delivery to the parish this weekend.

The powerful hurricane’s eye passed a mere 45 miles south of Kingston, causing widespread power outages across Jamaica. The loss of electricity has also disrupted several traffic signals. Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Gary McKenzie, head of the Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch (PSTEB), stated that officers have been dispatched to manage traffic in affected areas. The hurricane has wreaked havoc throughout the Caribbean, resulting in at least 10 fatalities. St Vincent and the Grenadines, Grenada, and Venezuela each reported three deaths, while Jamaica recorded one.

The storm nearly obliterated all homes on the small islands of Mayreau and Union in St Vincent and the Grenadines. Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS) reported that approximately 65% of its customers—around 400,000 people—were without power as of Thursday morning. The hurricane has caused significant damage, with MP Floyd Green describing the impact in St Elizabeth South Western: "We have seen substantial numbers of roofs gone, homes destroyed, trees uprooted, power poles downed, and almost all roads are blocked."

King Charles III, who is also the monarch of several Caribbean nations, expressed his deep sorrow over the destruction caused by Hurricane Beryl. The United Nations has released $4 million (£3.1 million) from its emergency response fund to aid recovery efforts in Jamaica, Grenada, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
