(BVI News) All emancipation festivities have been scrapped as the British Virgin Islands (BVI) has been crippled by less than 24 hours of heavy continuous rainfall – not a tropical storm or hurricane.
Flash flooding on Monday left several houses and businesses flooded, and multiple roads damaged.
Providers of basic utilities – especially the Water and Sewerage Department – have been left in a tailspin.
So far, this media house has not seen any official word from the government headed by Premier Dr D Orlando Smith about the wide-scale damage.
There has been no report of any death.
