The Department of Airport Operations advised that, due to extremely high tides, there has been some minor flooding in the Long Term Parking Facility at the LF Wade International Airport.

“Car owners are reminded that parking is at their own risk and while in this one instance DAO was able to take preventive measures to help safeguard vehicles, by no means will this be guaranteed for any future events of this nature.
