I found an app - SpyMeSat - that lets you pick anywhere on earth and check all non-classified satellite images of that spot. This picture was taken September 9 at 9:54 am by the GeoEye-1 satellite.

The roof is all there, and even the palapa is still standing!

Excellent detective work! Maybe Mal can use it to find his house, as long as it went over Sept 9 also

Between this and Wladimir Castro posting photos of his relief missions, today is better, one day at a time.

Manpot - just emailed you a couple of images. They aren't very clear but still give a pretty good idea. Looks like a roof to me!!

Very cool! Glad you can see your house looks okay.

I have tried, but can't get the app to give me anything. If anyone wants to play detective for me, we are at Sandy Ground Estates (between Abe's and Foxy's Taboo) on the East End of Jost. We are the smaller house on the point behind Great House Villa (directly on the point closest to Taboo).

Would love to see a roof, and a terrace!

Great news!
There has been so much devastation, hearing about places being spared gives some hope.
