I saw a picture in one of the albums linked to on here. There appears to be a lot of flooding at the end of Billy Folly Rd (imagine that!) and most of the trees and vegetation gone but the Atrium was standing. No idea about internal damage.

Check through the different links to pictures and you should find it. Pretty sure it is in the "Stunning pictures" thread

Correct. Here's a direct link to the photo of Billy Folly Rd and the Atrium (from the "Stunning pictures" thread).

Just saw a very brief video clip on the Weather Channel taken at the B Pool at Simpson Bay Resort. It appears that the roof on the C building is gone as well as the north end of the roof on the lower B Building. The was an upended car on the pool deck right were we normally sit. So worried about everyone long term.

I also got an email from the CEO of DeVry (owner of the Med School. They will be evaluating everyone by boat to St. Kitts where they can they be flown to the mainland.

Festivaís Atrium Resort in St. Maarten Suffers Hurricane Irma Damage

September 7, 2017 Pat Barcas
We have been keeping a close watch on the impacts and path of Hurricane Irma, and we have some initial information on how the Atrium Resort & Spa in St. Maarten has been affected.

The islandís infrastructure is severely damaged, including the airport and utilities, and the process of rebuilding everything affected by the storm will take years. We are fortunate to report that as compared to other hotels on the island, the Atrium did well. We have approximately 15-20 rooms with damages due to the fact the winds took some of the storm shutters. The resortís general manger and her team are assessing specifics with the help of a local contractor and are working on a short-term plan as we prepare for Hurricane Jose coming in Irmaís wake.

We are also trying to evacuate our guests who were not able to leave the resort prior to the storm. While the resort does have power via the generator, there will be no internet or phone service for the time being. Since the airport is damaged there will be no departures or arrivals on the island via commercial airlines for some period of time.

We are happy to report that all employees and guests are safe; however, we know that recovery for all those who live and work on the island will be difficult. We will keep our members and guests updated as often as possible and will share ways that we can all help the people of St. Maarten recover from this devastation.

Please note that if you are a Festiva owner or member with an upcoming reservation at the Atrium, we will be contacting you soon via email.
