The medical school is being used as a shelter. All students who sheltered in the building are safe.

Since the thread is 10 years old, there is a good chance many of the links no longer work.

Having postponed a trip to SXM in June, we rescheduled and we're due to leave this Sunday. I am so sad for everyone there and just praying that everyone there is okay.

does anyone know of any damage to Divi Little Bay resort?




The Divi Timeshare Owners Facebook page has four photos of damage posted. One is of the Infinity Pool, which appears largely cosmetic. Another is of a walkway between buildings that appears to have a part of the roof on the ground. The others are of an overturned car in the parking lot. They were taken by a guest who opted to stay in his room instead of going to the main building, which was built to withstand hurricanes.

Can you post a link to that page?

The pictures are alarming. Take a look at La Vista's Facebook page. They recorded two FB live shots that are devastating

Special prayers for all the people of St. Martin and our friends that we have made over the years. May their inner strength prevail to see them through this difficult time.

To all of my fellow Floridian St Martin/St Maarten lovers, may Irma not be the b---h to us she was to the island. She's already taken away our 39th anniversary celebration that was supposed to start today but I'll be darned I'm gunna let her get me at home. Im in Sarasota, which looks like going to be a direct hit. I have my shutters up, Force 12 hurricane screens, portable generator and couple of cases of bottled water. I will hope for the best to ALL of our Florida members.
