Irma incursion: Heavy damage to St Thomas and St John

Thursday, September 7, 2017

ST. THOMAS, USVI – St. Thomas and St. John have received heavy damage from Hurricane Irma. Many homes and businesses have lost their roofs on St. Thomas and St. John and flooding is severe, preliminary reports indicate. There are reports of some injuries, but no fatalities reported so far. Power is out and cell services is down in most locations. The BVI, St. Martin, Barbuda and other islands are reporting major damage, as is Puerto Rico. St. Croix, further to the South, had much lighter damage, with some poles down, flooding and minor damage.Communication is extremely limited on St. Thomas. The USVI Hurricane Irma Alert Facebook page is filled with dozens and dozens of messages asking for information on relatives. Few replies are given. –Bill Kossler writing for the St. Thomas Source website. The heart-breaking full story here, updated in the past few minutes (0945 PDT Thu 7 Sep).
