He said there was also some clean up to do at the airport.

“However, it will be receiving any aircraft that wants to bring any particular emergency supplies,” he said.

“Hopefully, we will be back in busiuness at the airport Wednesday afternoon, Thursday,” he said, adding that the airprot authorites will indicate.

“But, definitely, the airport will not be open tomorrow (Tuesday).”

The information from the prime minister suggestedt that the Union Island and Canouan Airport in the Southern Grenadines also will not operate.

The roof at the Union Island Airport was blown off and the government was yet to get a detailed initial report of the impact of the Hurricane on Canouan, where the telephone network appeared to have collapsed.
