Culebra fared better than the main island of PR. No fatalities, very few homes destroyed, and had restrung 75% of the power grid. However, most electricity comes from the main island, via Vieques, as does most of their water. Currently, the barriadas near Dewey receive power from 6pm-6am from an aging diesel generator. A few restaurants have reopened with limited menues cooked by private generators. I am in touch with the folks who run the largest vacation rentals business. They are presently not taking any bookings through November, or until the actual reliable restoration of power can be predicted.

Will send updates as they come in.

Thanks for the update Doug. Crossing my fingers and toes on a January 2018 sail to Culeba from Red Hook
