GOVERNOR MMCLEARY ISSUES AN ALL CLEAR

August 23, 2012756Views
The National Emergency Operations Center is advising the BVI community that the Governor has consulted with the Director of Disaster Management and is satisfied that the immediate threat is over and has issued the official ALL CLEAR. 

However, as a result of squall-like conditions and rain bands which continue to rotate throughout the area, the Antigua Meteorological Office has continued the Tropical Storm Warning for the Virgin Islands until further notice.

The Governor has indicated that all government offices will be open for business today; therefore, all government officers are expected to report to work.

Power is still on throughout the Territory; however for your safety avoid downed or dangling utility wires and report any faults to the BVIEC.  The water and Sewerage Department has indicated that public water supply has been restored.

All sea ports are open throughout the Territory for commercial vessels but for Ferry services, the public is asked to contact the individual Ferry providers.  The Terrence B. International Airport is open for business.

Residents are asked to be careful while driving on the road in the squall-like conditions, especially along coastal areas. Sea conditions have deteriorated; therefore small crafts are cautioned to remain at port.  All other vessels should exercise extreme caution.
