Significant progress has been made in the clean-up operation following Storm Ciarán.
All main Government roads are now accessible and can be viewed on this interactive map.
People are still advised to travel with care, using main routes where possible, as some parish routes remain impassable or will only be passable in one direction. Parish officials continue to clear parish roads, with progress being communicated on their social media accounts.
Islanders are advised to leave more time for journeys and be conscious of road conditions, as congestion and delays will continue in some areas.
Significant progress has also been made in restoring electricity to properties throughout the Island, with many Islanders who had been displaced able to return home today. JEC has now reconnected more than 700 homes and businesses, with fewer than 100 customers without power.
If you are without power, vulnerable, and require accommodation due to electricity outages, please call: 01534 505422, open on Monday between 9am-5pm. Or contact JEC's emergency line on 01534 505050.
Government continues to provide care and support services to Islanders who are unable to return home due to storm damage to properties.
All schools are open with the exception of Samarès School, Hautlieu School, and Victoria College. The three schools that are closed will contact parents directly regarding student plans and reopening.
As storm repairs continue to take place at Hautlieu School today, the school is postponing their planned 16-plus options evening from this Tuesday (7 November) to Tuesday 28 November at 6.30pm.
Fresh food and deliveries continue to arrive on Island and be distributed, although there may be some variation in stores.
Les Quennevais indoor sports facilities
Following checks of the roof structure by Jersey Property Holdings and relevant contractors this afternoon, Les Quennevais indoor sports facilities will reopen tomorrow for normal activities.
