THE VALLEY, Antigua — Airport operations in the Caribbean island of Anguilla are back to normal because workers have fixed equipment caused by Hurricane Earl.
Airport manager Remington Lake said today that a radar beacon damaged in the storm has been repaired and there are no flight disruptions.
Earlier, Caribbean airline LIAT said the damaged beacon prompted it to halt nighttime flights to Anguilla.
Tourism is a vital industry in Anguilla and any disruption in air service is a major concern to local businesses. The hurricane tore roofs from houses and caused flooding but no major injuries.
