Emergency Personnel Urges St. Thomas Residents to Refrain From Traversing on Bovoni Road.

With increasing efforts to suppress the fire at the Bovoni Landfill, the Virgin Islands Police Department, V.I. Fire Medical and Emergency Medical Services, and V.I. Waste Management Authority ask that the members of the community refrain from traversing on Bovoni Road in order for large emergency and water trucks to freely traverse the roadway in efforts to extinguish the ongoing fire.

The Virgin Islands Education Department (VIDE) Leadership Team will be providing emergency updates regarding the Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School closure instructional plan, alongside other school updates at 10:30 a.m. via VIDE’s Facebook Live.

All previous advisories remain in full effect regarding this ongoing incident for the safety of all residents affected by the landfill fire.
