Just a quick update folks…
We just received a call from Bridgette and Jimmy Key, owners of Palm Tree Charters. They just left the morning meeting in Cruz Bay, and they left with great news! Two hundred and fifty additional linemen are en route to the Virgin Islands! How great is that!
Of the 250, 100 will be heading to St. John. Seventy five will head to St. Croix and the other 75 will head to St. Thomas. They will be coming on barges complete with bucket trucks and equipment. These linemen are in addition to the 35 that we already knew were headed to Cruz Bay. That puts the total at 135 linemen plus our current WAPA employees … amazing!!
We confirmed this information with Siobhan Mulvey, one of the organizers of Love City Strong. She said that there is still not a concrete timeline for power restoration, but this is great news nonetheless!!
