Premier Andrew Fahie is encouraging residents to remain watchful even though Hurricane Jerry did not impact the territory.
He said this is necessary because the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season has not yet concluded. The season officially ends on November 30.
Below is his full statement on the subject.
Good morning and God’s Blessings to you and yours.
Our Comforter and Heavenly Father said in His word: “Fear not, for I am with you.” I thank our Lord and Saviour for giving us the opportunity in the Virgin Islands to wake up to a bright and sunny morning.
Thanks be to God that Hurricane Jerry did not come near our dwelling and is moving away. God is merciful.
I still want us to remain vigilant though. We must not let our guard down! This Atlantic Hurricane Season is expected to be a busy one. So, let us continue to ‘Be Ready’. Let us continue to stock up on supplies. Let us continue to make the necessary repairs, where possible. Let us continue to tend to our emotional and spiritual needs and stay prayed up!
I wish to thank the team at DDM and all the Government stakeholders who helped to prepare the territory and to make information sharing possible.
May God continue to bless and protect the people of the Virgin Islands. May He also be merciful on us and our brothers and sisters throughout the region. I note that there are other systems coming as well.
BE READY, STAY READY! Rest of a wonderful day!
