(VI Consortium) The Bryan-Roach administration made known on Tuesday that it has asked the V.I. Legislature for $200,000 to support the recovery of Grenada, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, which were recently impacted by the passage of Hurricane Beryl.

Lieutenant Governor Tregenza Roach addressed the USVI community during a briefing from Government House on St. Croix, where he announced the relief effort being spearheaded by the Government of the Virgin Islands in cooperation with the Department of Tourism.

The Hurricane Beryl Relief Effort seeks to aid those most affected by the hurricane, which left a trail of destruction in Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and other island communities in the Eastern Caribbean.

“Today I stand before you with a profound sense of duty and compassion as we address the urgent needs of our Caribbean neighbors who have been gravely affected by Hurricane Beryl,” Mr. Roach said.

Hurricane Beryl has caused immense hardship for countless families, Mr. Roach further stated. “Homes have been destroyed, communities have been uprooted, and lives have been changed irrevocably,” he said.
