Agreed, one pool cover might well cover the roof of a small building, as compared to 6 to 8 tarps (like the ones that are currently on our roof at home)... But unlike these folks, we got electric back after a week, thank goodness!!
Crowley transships out of PR but Tropical comes direct to Port Purcell. Tropical runs Wednesday and Friday out of Rivera Beach (West Palm) that takes 4-5 days. The hold up is usually getting the LCL containers broken down and cleared at Port Purcell.
No duty on tarps through mid December. Port charges are waived for general relief supplies but can be onerous if addressed to an individual.

If all goes well, Canadian Tire is organizing shipment of tarps, inflatable beds, generators and a few other necessities hopefully this week direct to Port Purcel via Crown Bay. Should have a few FCL good to go. First of many. We also have loads of lumber, household goods, etc. ready to go when time is right. First things first.
Anyone know of other immediate needs? A's you know,comm's on island are limited.
