Looks like the dingy dock in CGB survived. Truly amazing!

Until further notice clearance at the West End ferry trminal will be "al fresco" as there is nothing left but the slab.

There are no cell phones or power working in WE -- there are some videos available from: Caribbean Buzz Helicopters on FB. WE ferry terminal is all but gone, the road/bridge to Harbor market is still there, Harbor market is standing but looted, Voyage yachts are all gone -- Ottertude was flipped up on a roof top next to the shipyard, Pussers is gone, Fish n Lime is gone.

It was probably so far underwater during the surge that it was protected.

Glenn, that is a jerkoff statement. You have no heart. Shame on you.

BS Glenn is fine and on target to feeding the kids of Tortola. The less than welcoming feel on both ends of Tortola have harmed many. Anything less than a wide open hussle welcoming people and materials will not be in the best interest of the recovery and next generation.

If you are worried about drugs a couple of small framed females and small talented canines can tell law enforcement who to follow up with.

In 2018 never make a visitor wait between the time they land and the taxi. No forms, nothing

I see nothing wrong with Glenn's quip
I could share a few myself to lighten the mood.. except for concern of getting flamed like he just got.

All being said - via video from CBH... my place above the ferry terminal was on the video
Sadly.. wind must have got under the 2nd floor balcony overhang - tore that off - taking half the roof with it

Let's see... are we allowed to pack hammers'n'saws in carry-on ?
((sigh))

what the people on Tortola need right now is heavy equipment and construction workers to rebuild. I am a carpenter from New York and would throw my hat into the ring if I knew which hat to throw it into. Don't know what to do help out. Maybe give money.

I had a corkscrew confiscated by TSA a few weeks ago that I forgot was in carryon. We sat in first class where they gave me a 6 inch metal knife with lunch. Don't think your tools would pass.
