I never thought such a valuable experience could be had with the enabler being a disaster. As a professional but more critically, as a man who loves this Territory, I was moved by the visible love for the BVI expressed through a caring and attentive community; even through the uncertainty of the past storms. We still have an active hurricane season and we must all Be Ready and Stay Ready.

Today, we have seen showers, winds, and rough seas. I have been advised by the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) that there will most likely be more to come this evening as Tropical Storm Karen passes near us and moves away.

Good day to all residents and visitors in the Virgin Islands.  The National Emergency Operations Centre continues to monitor Tropical Storm Karen as this system deteriorated somewhat overnight and then regained strength today. The Territory remains under Tropical Storm Warning, meaning that tropical storm conditions are expected in our islands.
