ST. CROIX - The V.I. Elections System office in the Sunny Isle annex closed on Thursday morning and won't be open again until Monday "as a result of an intense odor that has been identified," according to a statement Elections issued Thursday morning.

The statement said that "corrective action has been taken to address the issue," and apologized for any inconvenience.

Thursday afternoon, business at the Social Security Administration office next door to Elections was bustling, and people there said they had not smelled anything unusual. The Kmart appliance store also was open for business.
