From that far in the air the buildings appear to be fine, but I recall seeing other photo sets taken from the ground level after Irma showing many of the surviving concrete structures moved slightly off their foundations, out of kilter, with cracked walls, foundations undermined etc. In these pictures they all have their doors opened wide to circulate air through them to dry them out.

I'm not sure if that means they are salvageable and will be redone, or maybe it's just being done prevent mold growth or something along those lines while the decision to demolish them is being considered or planned?




Actually the doors aren't open to air the units; they were sucked off by the storm, taking all of the contents of the building with them. So yeah, silver-lining is that the shells of the builds are well aired out....

Jenni--I believe your family owns a unit there? Any updates as to when rebuilding will begin?

I haven't heard any dates yet. I'm sure they'll be posted on Facebook when anything becomes official and ready for public consumption. Island time, you know!

For not the single most important spot on the island, as of now this thread had 8,913 views at 13 days old.
Draw your own conclusions.
Again, only an opinion, not looking for a squabble.

Sorry, did not mean that to be directed at Carol, just the general board.

I'm not sure that you can extrapolate that from the number of views.
Given...those who love Orient are passionate....and would be the type to check a particular thread several times a day. So one person could account for multiple views, not multiple people.'

Just sayin'

St Maarten Island is a beautiful place. We were in Jamaica a few weeks ago but really missed the SXM experience.
Though we love keeping current with SXM news, we are not the types to drive up the view count by multiple visits to TTOL every day, and drive an agenda. No one we have met does that either, to be honest.

Heck. I check the same thead multiple times a day just to see the responses. There goes your theory. And orient isn't my favorite beach area.
