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.
