Hi all,
I have collected pictures over the last few days from social media. Some of you do not have social media accounts or can access the links easily to see the damage that has been done. My main point here is to help spread the news that the islands need help and fast. These are not my photos, and they are not for sale or profit. Just for a better understanding of the issue at hand. I have posted photos of many events in the BVI here on TTOL and have never sold them.

If there are any issues please let us know and they will be removed. I will update as time permits and new images are available.

Thanks
Steve

Thank you. We've been chartering in the BVI since 92. Owned a boat for several years there. We've always (kind of) considered that we "grew up" there.. Didn't realize how many stories I had until we took niece and nephew in law on charter last month.

Thanks for the photos. Totally unbelievable!! From all the pics I have seen in the last 2 days it appears that the BVI, SXM and Barbuda took the brunt of this monster. Most pics look like the aftermath of a huge tornado! God bless and watch over all the residents that need to survive.

Joan,
How did Mahoe Bay fare? We loved your villa when we rented it several years ago and you were so kind to us!
I hope you are well
Mary

Updated pictures

Close ups Leverick from Javier, he's on site from PR with the PR Navy providing supplies.. Nice to see the PR Navy supporting the BVIs. Many sport fish boats arrived with MREs water etc..

Thanks Steve so much..still frustrating to see no pix of our end of Little Apple Bay!If you are trying to reach me we'll be escaping Irma overload and stress for lunch at Domaine Carneros..it sounds obscene with our beloved BVIs wrecked but Candace and I really need to try to relax a little..might as well spend some $$$ before we plough it back into the BVI economy. Hoping Cheryl will surface sometime soon and is OK..

Sorry Mal, nothing yet.

Updates from Dive BVI and Javier
Trellis
Vigin Gorda Yacht harbor
Marina Cay
Scrub
West End
St thomas

And some good photos of relief! Air support landing at Beef and the PR Navy arriving Virgin Gorda unloading meals, water, generators. As time goes on I hope to have good news pictures.

If you can donate to the cause there are a few sites that can be found on FB.
