Road Town, Tortola,September 24, 2010 – Response agencies, both government and private and have been extremely active since Sunday's flash flood. On the 19th September 2010, as Hurricane Igor moved northward, it drew most of the moisture from a tropical wave south of the Virgin Islands. This resulted in the showers and intense thunderstorms that affected the local area on Sunday afternoon, causing many areas to experience flash flooding.
