 Tropical Storm Erika Update

Thank you for your prayers during Tropical Storm Erika. We are also thankful that the storm has blown away from the U.S. Virgin Islands. A post storm assessment shows power is on in 95 percent of the Territory, all roads have been cleared and all airports and seaports have reopened.

We remain open for business thanks to the joint efforts of many people within the Territory and in the U.S. government.
