The Department of Public Works is prepared to distribute sandbags ahead of the possible impacts of the disorganized storm system, Invest 96L, and for the remainder of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

Based on the forthcoming forecast that will be issued by the National Weather Service – San Juan on Monday, August 5, the Virgin Islands Territorial Emergency Management Agency and Public Works will assess the need to issue sandbags to the community. More information, to include territory-wide locations and collection times for sandbag distribution will be provided at that time.

Residents are encouraged to continue to make preparations for the duration of the hurricane season which concludes on November.
