ANGUILLA – The U.S. Virgin Islands Water and Power Authority (WAPA) is assisting the island of Anguilla utility company Anguilla Electric Company Ltd. with the restoration and recovery in the wake of Hurricane Gonzalo that passed the islands on Monday afternoon and evening.
On Wednesday, Anguilla put out a request for assistance to help restore electricity. WAPA responded by sending a crew of 10 men from two districts that includes linesmen, an engineer tech and a line superintendent.
WAPA and Anguilla Electric Company Ltd. are both members of the Caribbean regional body CARILEC where in times of need, the member islands would come to each other’s aid.
The WAPA left the US Virgin Islands on Thursday.
