Tsunami siren

A V.I. Water and Power Authority crew works with V.I. Territorial Emergency Management Agency subcontractor ANS Service to install a siren at Arthur Richards Junior High School on St. Croix.

The territory’s tsunami early warning system — which failed an audible test in November — is scheduled to be refurbished this month, a V.I. Territorial Emergency Management Agency spokesman has told The Daily News.

VITEMA spokesman Garry Green said via email that the refurbishment will “replace and harden many of the key components damaged by” hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017.
