Antigua partners with EU for emergency docking port

The EU financed a new Emergency Ferry Docking Facility in Antigua to give the island the possibility for a swift reaction if disaster strikes. In 1995, Hurricane Luis hit Antigua and Barbuda while an eruption of the Soufriere Volcano threatened Montserrat in the same year.

The Docking Facility will allow Antigua to evacuate its territory in case of an emergency, and also permits it to move relief supplies to Montserrat. CARIFORUM had identified the project as a priority and expressed its gratitude to the European Union for its contribution in financing the facility.
