PROJECT #2: Youths in Action for Earthquake Preparedness - YAEP Global
The Earthquake Unit (EQU): Department of Geology and Geography in the Faculty of Science and Technology at the Mona Campus of the University of the West Indies.
The 1692 Jamaica earthquake struck Port Royal, Jamaica on June 7, 1969. A stopped pocket watch found in the harbour indicated that it occurred around 11:43 a.m.
Of the 48,000 people living in Kingston at the time, over 1000 perished, mostly in the fires following the shocks (main and after-shocks). The aftershocks continued for the rest of the year. Some 9,000 people were left homeless throughout the island. Damage (building) for that event was estimated at two million pounds (back then).

Childhood Obesity continues to be a serious problem in Jamaica, with more than 11 per cent of children, 10 to 15 years old, and 35 per cent of teenagers, between 15 to 18 years, being classified as overweight or obese.
The Government is moving to address the issue and other lifestyle diseases, through the recently established National Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) Committee.
Director, Health Promotion and Protection Unit, Ministry of Health, Dr. Kevin Harvey, says that childhood obesity is not only a problem in Jamaica, but an epidemic in many countries, and is on the rise in most others, with an estimated 22 million children, under the age of five years, deemed to be overweight worldwide.
