ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – In anticipation of rough seas today, September 17, 2022, Port facilities at Port Purcell, the Road Town Ferry Terminal, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada will be closed today, September 17, 2022.

This is according to acting Governor, David D. Archer Jr in noting that authorities will be monitoring the passage of Tropical Storm Fiona, as he encouraged you all to follow the updates being shared by the Department of Disaster Management.

The governor in a statement last evening, Friday September 16, 2022, said Public Service has been working diligently to prepare for this system, from securing schools, public buildings and safeguarding other public assets.

Take steps to protect self - Acting Governor 

“As we move through the long weekend, it is very important for our businesses and households to take steps to protect themselves and their property. Have your emergency plans ready to activate, if needed.”

Already, VI’s airports have been closed as the storm passes south of VI over the weekend and the Governor also urged persons to check on family and business emergency stocks, essential documents, and back-up communications.

“For those who are able, please also reach out to those in your community who might need some assistance as they carry out final preparations for this system.” 

He said while people may be feeling particularly anxious at this time, it is important that the People of the VI still remember to take care of themselves and each other.
