St. John: Hurricane update 4:15 p.m. EDT

Checking the Spicecam at 4 p.m., two people were seen standing on the ferry dock looking at the harbor and the destroyed dingy dock. 

Either the storm is abating (and the power's back on) or those were some pretty wild and crazy guys.

At 3pm, the National Hurricane Center said, "EYE OF EARL PASSING JUST NORTH OF THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS."

Governor's ordered a curfew, 6 p.m. – 5:30 a.m. "The effects from Hurricane Earl, at least for now, appear to be more pronounced in the St. Thomas- St. John where rainfall and gusty winds have been on the increase since early this morning," John de Jongh said. "There is a large volume of unnecessary traffic on the roadways of the Virgin Islands. Retail prices are frozen at the levels they were on Sunday and should not be increased until the order is relaxed.” There have been reports of sharp price increases for good and commodities in the two island districts
