Omar's Rains Close Magens Bay for Swimming

Oct 18, 2008 — Magens Bay is temporarily closed for swimming, Hubert Brumant, Magens general manger said Saturday morning. The beach, however is open with no charge, he said, but "don't go in the water."
Though the St. Thomas infrastructure suffered little damage in Hurricane Omar, it did affect the famous beach. Brumant said the three guts at the beach broke their banks Thursday morning. "Water that has been circulating in there for a number of years is now running into the ocean," he said.
"There's no estimate for opening now,"Brumant said. "The water will be tested on Monday. Until we know the water is safe, we want people to enjoy the beach, the sunshine and the food. The restaurant is open."
