Tropical Storm Warning – Hurricane Fiona
As the Department of Tourism for the U.S. Virgin Islands, our utmost priority is the safety and comfort of our visitors. This advisory is intended to assist individuals with short-term travel to U.S. Virgin Islands or visitors already in the destination.
The National Weather Service has lifted its Hurricane Watch advisory for the U.S. Virgin Islands; however, the Territory remains under a Tropical Storm Warning and flashflood watch as Fiona, which has strengthened to a hurricane, continues its westward track toward Puerto Rico.
- AIRPORTS: Both airports in the U.S. Virgin Islands – Henry E. Rohlsen Airport on St. Croix and Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas are now reopened.
- SEAPORTS: All USVI seaports are now reopened.
Visitors are encouraged to exercise caution and check with airlines, hotels, car rental companies, tour operators, etc. to determine what actions they plan to take or policies the businesses have in place.
