Airports to close today until Tropical Storm Fiona passes

The TB Lettsome International Airport.

The BVI Airports Authority has informed the public that the territory’s airports will be closed today until Tropical Storm Fiona has passed by the territory.

The BVIAA noted the Auguste George International Airport on Anegada and Taddy Bay International Airport in Virgin Gorda will close at sunset while the Terrance B Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island will close at 7 pm local time.

“We are therefore asking all employees and stakeholders to ensure their offices, property, equipment etcetera are secured by the close of business today,” the press release noted.

“Once the ‘All Clear’ has been given, an assessment will be undertaken on all the facilities of each airport to make sure they are operationally safe, and a further press release issued to announce their openings,” the statement continued.

The last update by the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) indicated that at 11 am this morning, Tropical Storm Fiona was approximately 425 miles east southeast of Road Town.

The territory is still under a Tropical Storm Watch.

“A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours. Persons are asked to make sure their preparedness plans are in place and stay tuned to DDM social media pages and local radio stations for updates,” DDM said.

    Some of the hurricane is going to hit the BVI. It is suppose to hit STT sometime Saturday morning. I did all the preparations that I had to do around my property and my home. Now all I have to do is sit and wait to see what comes our way.

    Cindy said she issued and served Heritage, but Heritage deny he been served. Did Cindy even file a claim?

  10. Well Well says:

    I came online to read the news, and this type of conversation I have to deal with. . We have to be more conscious of what we put out on these sites.
    BviNews sensor your chat group, please. Not everyone needs to be reading this silliness.

  11. SO WHAT ? says:

    EVEN IF IT WAS CALLED A HURRICANE 🌀 INSTEAD OF A STORM ❓ THE POINT IS YOU ALL GOT THE MESSAGE , YOU ALL JUST WANT TO SHOW OFF YOURSELVES too BECAUSE YOU WENT TO A UNIVERSITY 🎓 OR ~ WAH ❔ •¿•

  12. My take says:

    All of you need to just shut the F**k up already. Hear talking S**t because someone said hurricane. What a bunch of lunatics you people are.

  13. Hoping says:

    It rain cats and dogs the whole weekend. If it does, all of you that like to run the streets, stay home and clean your damn house or find a good book to read, READING IS FUNDAMENTAL.

  14. IF says:

    If it does rain cats and dogs, be careful not to step in a poodle.

  15. On the outside says:

    One thing I can say for sure is that we on the outside be getting some good ole laughs on you folks in the BVI. Y’all stay in the little square bubble wrap box and continue to bring on the entertainment.

  16. Honestly says:

    @Talk is cheap, don’t know or care which one is telling the truth, has nothing to do with me. One thing I can see is TOLA RADIO is loosing a lot of their viewers. Why? Most of the time the show is not on and there is no explanation as to why the show is not on air. Example: the host just got back from a vacation which he is entitled to and he did only MON, TUES AND WED SHOW AND THEN CRICKETS. NO EXPLANATION TO THE audience especially the International audience. Plenty of people is like, what is up with Heritage.

  17. Viewer says:

    We all know Heritage is a hot head and it don’t take much to set him off. He marches to the beat of his own drums, he listens to NOOOOO!!!!!!!!! one.
