What is being described as a freak accident has resulted in a power outage in sections of the Sea Cow’s Bay community of Tortola Thursday morning, November 5.
A relatively large tree in the area collapsed sometime around 6 am, damaging a nearby utility pole and a parked vehicle.
Personnel from the BVI Electricity Corporation have responded at the scene.
While there are no known reports of injury, the incident is said to be bizarre since there were no gusts of wind to cause the tree to fall.
