The Water and Power Authority got good grades for providing electrical power to most areas during Hurricane Jose.
As of 10:30 a.m. Patricia Blake Simmonds, spokesperson for WAPA, reported the following areas were experiencing difficulties:
On St. John the Bordeaux area is experiencing problems. Crews are out working to restore power.
Problems are being experienced on Water Island. Crews have been dispatched to work on the problems.
On St. Thomas problems have been experienced throughout the night and morning on parts of feeder seven affecting North Star Village, Peterborg and the Four Corners crossroad. Problems with feeder six are affecting upper Caret Bay, Crown and Hawk, Dorothea and Solberg, specifically Harbor View. Problems with feeder 10 are affecting areas of upper Estate St. Thomas.
On St. Croix, feeder two has been restored, but the area from Crusher to Grove Place is still experiencing an outage. The north shore area is also experiencing difficulties due to seablast, debris and trees on the lines.
Blake said all feeders are functioning, but residents can anticipate intermittent outages as crews work to repair equipment damaged by Hurricane Jose.
Emergency numbers are 774-1424 on St. Thomas and St. John and 773-0150 on St. Croix. Blake said 774-3552 is also being manned on St. Thomas.
"Potable water held up," Blake said.
