Headline: PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO OPEN THURSDAY; CURFEW LIFTED

With considerable progress made in the restoration of power and the clearing of roadways, Governor John P. de Jongh, Jr. and Lt. Governor Gregory R. Francis are announcing the official opening of public schools territory-wide on Thursday and the lifting of the nightly curfew in the St. Thomas-St. John district, which was imposed as a public safety measure in the aftermath of Hurricane Earl.

Based on assessments and reports from the leadership of Department of Education and the V.I. Water and Power Authority, power has been restored at all of the territory’s public schools, flooded classrooms have cleared of water and cleaned and a majority of the hurricane debris have been cleared from school grounds. Public schools territory-wide are now ready to receive students.

The department’s school lunch program and bus transportation services will also resume as of Thursday.

The V.I. Water and Power Authority is continuing its efforts to restore remaining are without energy, according to WAPA Executive Director Hugo Hodge Jr.

According to WAPA’s assessment of restoration efforts, as of Wednesday afternoon on St. John, restoration is 95 percent complete with all schools and government offices fully energized.

On St. Croix about 85 percent of the feeders have been restored. Line crews continued to work across the island in areas including; William’s Delight, Gove Place, Carambola, Canaan Ridge, King’s Hill, Judith’s Fancy, Rattan, Questa Verde, Smithfield, Two Williams, Whim, Estate Welcome, Christiansted Town, Boetzberg, Cotton Valley, Five Corners, Mon Bijou and La Grande Princess.

Wapa phones are like above here, no answer.
We need to be careful not to power the grid, workers can get hurt/die.

WAPA still out on Beeston Hill. I saw a WAPA truck yesterday, nothing since. Every time I call WAPA they sound like it is the first time that they are hearing about the power outage, they have no idea when power will be back on. When you live on a third world island, a generator is a necessity of life. Either that or go green, you certainly cannot depend on WAPA.

We called to report our power out yesterday. They took the info and Ric's cell number. Tonight at about 6:30 they called us back. Evidently they ARE working and then checking to see if what they've done has restored power to specific areas. Anyway, we were out to dinner when they called. She gave us a number to call when we got home. We did, they answered, we told them we still didn't have power. They said thanks for calling back and they would keep working and call again.

We're in Betsy's Jewel. We did see a wapa crew in Mon Bijou on the way home, so I do think they're working on it.
