The U.S. Coast Guard has announced that it will close all seaports in the St. Croix district only at 8:00 p.m. tonight, August 26, 2019, due to inclement weather expected as Tropical Storm Dorian passes the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The closure does not affect the seaports in the St. Thomas/St. John district, which will remain open.  The Virgin Islands Port Authority urges all mariners to adhere to the directives of the U.S. Coast Guard and to exercise safety precautions while traveling on the sea as the storm passes.
