Apologies if this is a repeat. Totally gone per Lesley Bruce. But he and Shirley are safe.

Tracey from BSV has posted this: One more hopeful photo that BSV was spared... I did look at the picture and can see that they are standing.

Linda,

Okay - so I'm confused. Are you saying BSV is totally gone? I know Lesley and Shirley are fine but sustained minimal damage to their home. Not sure about BSV. Earlier this morning I read somewhere that the roof tops of BSV could be seen - I think in one of the airport posts. So much heartache all across the island....


Respectfully,

pat

Now I'm confused. All I know is that he (Lesley) posted in the Simply Facebook group that BSV was totally gone.

No, ABSOLUTELY NOT correct. As of 10 AM today, Tracy said "We are still standing but do not know the extent of the damage we sustained as yet. Thank you for your concern!"

And I did see a picture of the airport which you can see the buildings vaguely in the background.

Good to hear,
Alot of concrete as I remember to disappear. Erosion around it all could be a problem if any



All very sad and tear jerking.

There was only one picture that I saw that showed the BSV buildings in the far background, a shot from the side, sort of. I can't remember where I even saw it now. That one picture is the ONLY one that I have seen that shows any of that area. It did NOT show Beacon Hill at all. I will see if I can try to find it again.

We were friends with tully and yoland way back when luis hit. they took a real beating. In fact we met then in our lawyers office, them there for luis, us there for a bad rentee. Sal know tully very well. the spent time together and we went to dinner together.... there units were devastated. I pray they can come back. but sure theres damage. they are on the beach... the whole island is bad, imagine beachside units... hope for the best. none of us are young anymore....

Just posted by Tracy a few minutes ago
"We have had contact with Emmanuel!!!! He was able to make his way to Beachside. He reports that the front gate is gone. The office and Marvlyn's office is gone. The Villas are intact and will need some roof repair ,but that structure wise they look good!!! The pool and gazebo also remain! The gardens have been wiped out as expected. We hope to see images in the next couple days, but hopefully sooner! Thank you for all your support and prayers. St Maarten & Beachside will rise again ❤️ Lets's pray Jose goes easy on us!"

Thank god, after so much devastation!!!

BSV as well as part of Beacon Hill can be seen in Photo 11. Surprisingly the Karakter bus seems to still be in place? Irma photos

Do we have any direct photos of BSV's? We know this is secondary way beyond belief! But have seen so many pictures and videos of destruction, but if any are available it would be much appreciated!
