GRENADA AIRPORT, BUSINESSES REOPEN AS TS DON DISSIPATES...  
Grenada's airport and businesses have reopened with authorities reporting no damage or flooding from Tropical Storm Don.

The National Disaster Management Agency says the eastern Caribbean island did not get hit with much rain as the storm rolled through the region.

The US National Hurricane Center says Don has now dissipated. By 10 p.m. Tuesday the remnants of the storm were reported to be about 55 miles west-southwest of Grenada, moving west at 25 mph. The storm had winds of 40 mph but no center of circulation. Tropical storm warnings and watches were dropped in the Windward Islands.

The system had prompted regional Caribbean airline LIAT to cancel a number of flights on Tuesday. In the latest update from the airline, LIAT reports that it has resumed operations at stations that were closed due to the passage of the storm. The office at St. Vincent has reopened and flights which are scheduled for today will operate as normal, while operations at Grenada are scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m.

LIAT is reminding passengers that check in starts two hours before scheduled departure and closes 45 minutes prior to departure. Passengers who have been affected by the storm will be allowed to rebook until July 30 with all change fees waived.
