Torrential rain fell in Kingston, flooding the capital's streets. The wind began to pick up, cutting power to street lights and many homes. Forecasters warned of sustained 145 mph blasts of wind.
"Remain calm. Do not panic," the government urged residents early Sunday. "Your ability to act logically is important during stressful events like a hurricane."
