WAPA: Outage Planned For Ridge Road To Cabrita Point Tomorrow


CHARLOTTE AMALIE – St. Thomas residents who live on the Ridge Road feeder can expect a power interruption between 9 a.m. to 12 noon tomorrow, according to the Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority.

WAPA said the “interruption is necessary to allow crews to safely perform maintenance on the Secret Harbor riser pole, which will serve to reduce the potential for service interruptions on the Ridge Road feeder.”

Customers from Ridge Road to Cabrita Point, including all hotels in the area, will be affected by the power outage, WAPA said.

“Motorists are asked to proceed cautiously in the area and to follow traffic directions for the safety of crews, pedestrians and other drivers,” WAPA Public Information Officer Jerain Fleming said. “We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this scheduled service interruption. Every effort will be made to restore service as quickly as possible.”

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
