ST. THOMAS — Residents had a rude awakening Monday in the St. Thomas-St. John District with another power outage at 6 a.m., and students at Gomez Elementary School went home early due to a water main break in the area.

V.I. Water and Power Authority spokesman Jean Greaux Jr. said power was fully restored by 8:30 a.m., and crews are working to determine the cause of the outage.
