Sept. 11, 2001 The V.I. Source publications will continue to report local news as we closely monitor events related to terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.
We are gathering pertinent local information on airline flights and seeking statements from local government officials and organizations and will continue to update as we receive information.
American Airlines flight 655, direct from New York's JFK Airport, has landed on St. Thomas as scheduled. Private vehicles are not being allowed to travel into Cyril E. King Airport. An American spokesperson said taxis will transport passengers to designated areas of the island.
One of those areas will be the cargo area of the airport, where private vehicles will be allowed to await passengers, who will be led to the area.
Continue to monitor the Source for updates on information pertinent to the Virgin Islands. And please e-mail us with any information you may have about Virgin Islands people or institutions affected by the terrorism incidents on the mainland.
