The Department of Public Works plans to give out tarps to those who need them on a sign-up basis, with contractors installing them, according to Government House.

Residents will be required to sign up for assistance at the following locations:

— Public Works Main Office – Sub Base

Advertising (skip)



— Kirwan Terrace Baseball Field

— Bordeaux Fire Station

— Tutu Fire Station

— Dorothea Fire Station

— Barbel Plaza Fire Station

— Public Works – St. John

Sign-up will begin on Monday, Sept. 25, due to concerns about more heavy weather over the weekend. The program will be administered by zones:

— Zone 1: Fortuna to Santa Maria

— Zone 2: North Side (Estate Pearl to Tabor and Harmony)

— Zone 3: Downtown Charlotte Amalie to Frenchman’s Bay

— Zone 4: Nazareth to Bovoni

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
