USVI quickly back in business after Hurricane Dorian

The US Virgin Islands are already welcoming tourists on St. Croix, St. Thomas and St. John after the passage of the Hurricane Dorian on Wednesday.

Now that the alerts, storm watches, warnings and curfews are lifted, Commissioner of Tourism Joseph Boschulte thanked all tourism industry stakeholders for their quick action preparing for the storm, as well as opening the territory for business.

Very little damage to tourism infrastructure

Dorian brought strong winds and rainfall, especially to the St. Thomas-St. John district, but Boschulte reported there was very little damage to the tourism infrastructure, and hotels and other accommodation facilities are welcoming guests.

All airports and seaports open

'We are thankful to our partners, including our airlines for sending extra aircraft today to mobilize our residents and visitors in and out of the territory,' said Boschulte, who confirmed that all airports and seaports are now open, facilitating the resumption of normal schedules.
