Causeway open, gas station break-in
The Causeway is now open with a one-way system in place, the Emergency Measures Organisation has announced.
The road was closed at 8.30pm last night and remained shut this morning until a full assessment had been completed.
According to Police Commissioner Michael DeSilva, the Causeway is expected to remain single lane on the Blue Hole Hill side for at least two days so that divers can examine the condition of the bridge.
Meanwhile, a break-in hit the Rubis gas station by the mainland end of the bridge.
Manager Viv Redford described it as a smash-and-grab, with the main door broken and cigarettes scattered on the floor.
“It’s not a major situation — we thought it was storm damage at first,” Mr Redford said.
Mr DeSilva confirmed that three burglaries have been reported in the last 24-hours, including one at a store and two at residences, however he could not attribute all three incidents to the period in which the Island was impacted by the storm.
