The NMIA shoreline is constantly under environmental pressures from both natural hazards, and climate change related events such as hurricanes, storm surges, and sea level rise. Over the past decades, the direct impact of such hazards have resulted in grave environmental degradation and socioeconomic disturbances at NMIA.Most notably, in 2004, following the passage of Hurricane Ivan, 310 meters of the shoreline was deemed to be in a critical state. The storm caused total destruction of the sand dunes and inundation of the roadway which led to the complete shutdown of the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA).
