I am happy to report that the Arecibo Observatory did not suffer damage from #HurricaneIrma.

We have resumed scientific observations today (09-08-2017), and our Science and Visitor's Center will reopen next Wednesday (09-13-2017), following our regular scheduled hours of operation.

Thanks to the incredible AO staff for their efforts and preparation before, during and after this storm.

Our best wishes to those who were affected by the storm in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.  Please stay safe and be strong.

- Eng. Francisco Córdova
  Director of the Arecibo Observatory
