The thunderstorm, which brought lightning and rain across the Virgin Islands, began around 6:00 pm and lasted for more than three hours.
The storm also knocked out power in several areas across the islands for about 2 hours.
According to Deputy General Manager of BVI Electricity Corporation (BVIEC) Symorne Penn, "a few feeders were affected by the weather."
Power in some areas on Tortola was disrupted around 7:05 pm and restored around 9:00 pm.
Our newsroom was told that Jost van Dyke is still without electricity; however, as there is a "fault".
Ms Penn said a BVIEC team is heading over this morning, July 26, 2021, to "repair and restore."
The loud thunderstorm followed a 3.4 magnitude earthquake that occurred in the VI region around 4:20 pm yesterday.
