“Weather conditions will be monitored throughout the day. Any departments where working conditions have been affected by the rain should communicate with their Permanent Secretary and at that time a decision will be made about the closure of the office,” the Deputy Governor said.
“We are entering the rainy season and the peak of the hurricane season and we should remain in a state of readiness at all times,” he added.
In the meantime, Beryl has also impacted at least one local ferry service — Virgin Gorda Transport, more commonly known as Speedy’s.
Below is the revised ferry schedule for Speedy’s.
