Several members of a Pentecostal congregation have sought refuge in their church from what they say is an apocalyptic flood that will destroy Jamaica.

The members of the Angels of God Sabbath Church, 10 adults and 14 children, have been living in the church since Easter and say they will stay there indefinitely. Their pastor, the Rev. Wesley Knott, claims God plans to punish Jamaicans for their sins and that only the church building will survive.
