The Virgin Islands is known for hurricane activity and a predicted number of storms each year. Our territory is also susceptible to earth quakes and tsunami. If you plan to visit the VI remember that June thru November is Hurricane season.

'Christopher Columbus named the islands after Saint Ursula and the 11,000 Virgins (Spanish: Santa Ursula y las Once Mil Vírgenes), shortened to the Virgins (las Vírgenes). The official name of the British territory is the Virgin Islands, and the official name of the U.S. territory is the Virgin Islands of the United States. In practice, the two island groups are almost universally referred to as the British Virgin Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands.'
