Hurricane Emily passed by the Caribbean island of Tobago last night but did little damage and left no casualties amongst island residents or holidaymakers. The strong winds and heavy rainfall associated with the storm brought down some trees and power was cut off in some more remote parts of the island, but it is quickly being restored. Tobago’s sister island Trinidad was unaffected by the hurricane.
The airport and seaports are back to schedule and hotels, guesthouses and villas are open and operational. One holiday chalet property suffered some limited damage from a fallen tree.
Nova Alexander, Trinidad and Tobago Tourism’s UK Manager confirmed that the island was operating as normal:
“Thank goodness the threat of Hurricane Emily has passed us. The airport is open again after temporarily closing and all flights are operating normally and the island is looking forward to welcoming its guests,” she reported.
