The Meteorological Office has advised that the Tropical Storm Watch (TSW) issued yesterday has now been lifted.

The danger from Tropical Storm Philippe has passed, except for some rain bands and intermittent gusts.

That being the case, the Sir V.C. Bird International Airport will begin allowing landings and take-offs at 10:00 am today, October 3, 2023.

All Primary and Secondary Schools will be closed for today, Tuesday, October 3, 2023, despite the lifting of the TSW.

Except for Essential Workers, government employees are also not required to report to work today.

Private sector operations are free to open for business, assuming there is no damage to the buildings in which their enterprises are housed.

Reports are that flooding occurred in low-lying areas prone to such conditions. Every effort will be made to assist those whose homes have been inundated by the rainfall.

It is also reported that a fire destroyed significant property at the Falmouth Harbour Marina, triggered by lightning strikes.

The Parliamentary Representative is already seeking to hold talks with the owners.

The Alfa Nero had been moved yesterday to Heritage Quay and is not harmed.

Electricity will be restored a little at a time until all APUA customers receive the precious flow to enable appliances and other equipment to be utilized once more.

Stay safe and take no un-necessary chances, the Prime Minister urges.
