So right.... I have been going to st.M. since 1986. have many friends, property, and many fond memorys... Of cource first issue is safty, but judging anyone that has invested interest or life on Island is wrong... No one walks in anyones shoes... Vacation is one thing, owning and possible huge losses with destruction is another... period

She is turning more a bit putting Sxm straight ahead if she doesn't keep turning. Let's hope and pray she keeps wheeling around to the North.

Praying for minimal impact to All we know on the island.

Luis hit in 1995 and we built the house in 1990. We were so young and in Love, with each other and SXM. We had our honeymoon there in 1982. The villa was damaged and our own builder said how can we ever fix all this. My awesome husband smiled and said we will rebuild. It is just a structure that can be repaired once again. People and animals are much more important. God Bless St. Maarten/ St. Martin and all the other islands around her. W

We own 2 condos on Beacon Hill and are off Island now in USA but I've been in touch with many people in SXM between yesterday and today and all are doing everything they can securing buildings and making sure all outdoor items are stored inside Condos etc. No one is relaxing on Island and the community spirit seems high but all are worried for their families and friends as well as pets. From what I have heard so far the North side of Island may take the hardest hit as well as the northeastern side. That doesn't mean that all areas won't escape severe damage . Lets pray the storm picks up speed; not wind speed, and passes quickly and curves to the North very soon.

First time as an owner of a condo watching a storm. While I have watched many storms, this is stressful. For me. It's just a thing. If lost it's lost. But for those living there, and talking via text, I can't comprehend what they are going through.

Yup. depending on your age. you can rebuild. this could be it for us. Too many years and too much rebuilding leads to enough is enough... Want my Island to go on and the people to go on... For now, its not about vacations its about the people that reside on Island, work on Island, and those that will get it back for you the vacationers... Its up too them period... They have to do the work... For now, we can only look on the inside. this is real for St.M.

Right On! At this point it is all about the folks who live there.

Yikes! Those are pretty strong sustained winds, never mind the gusts. Hoping for the best for those on island, neighbouring islands and those in the path of Irma for the next few days.
