St. Maarten — Water was restored to all consumers by 7.00pm, Wednesday evening, according to information from the office of disaster preparedness. Twelve water storage tanks were filled to capacity while the country’s three water plants are working full capacity to restore water to consumers.

Gebe crews have now started reconnecting households in areas that still have outages. Persons experiencing power outages are asked to call the company’s emergency number to provide information about this and their address and phone number.

The news release also noted that cargo port operations are up and running and preparations are well underway to make the cruise facilities ready. Persons taking debris to the landfill are encouraged to be patient and wait their turn to enter the area and homeowners and businesses busy with cleanup are reminded not to dump bush or tree trimmings or other garbage/debris on top of GEBE water meters or electrical meters.
