Tropical Storm Matthew has pounded St. Vincent and the Grenadines, leaving one person dead and several injured. A teenager in St. Vincent was clearing a blocked drain when a boulder fell on him. The storm also caused flooding and landslide in several communities, forcing more than three hundred persons to evacuate their homes and move in to emergency centres. Residents in Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, Dominica and Barbados were also impacted by the storm. The storm is continuing its westward track through the Caribbean and could still pose a direct threat to Jamaica. It is forecast to become a hurricane by Thursday night or Friday.
