The Water and Power Authority reportedly closed the island’s standpipe for water delivery trucks at noon today. One resident says there was no water available for delivery to homes and rental villas last Thursday and Friday.
The National Weather Service agrees all three islands are extraordinarily dry. Less than an inch of rain fell during February and March, making February the driest ever and this March, the second-driest. A territory-wide ban on burning permits also continues at the order of the Fire Service.
