August 19, 2007, Baltimore, MD - With Hurricane Dean expected to touch land in Jamaica Sunday afternoon, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has disaster relief experts on the ground, emergency supplies in hand and $50,000 on standby.

Holly Inurreta, Regional Technical Advisor for Emergencies in Latin America and the Caribbean, is monitoring the situation from the capital, Kingston, and is available for phone interviews.

She can discuss how the government is readying the island, how residents are preparing for the storm, and how CRS is prepared to help in its wake.
