Wow, what a shame. Looks like early days of post tsunami Japan.

Most of the "saint" islands are in horrible condition right now.

St. John, and St. Thomas

Heck the hospital on St. Thomas was destroyed.

I can't imagine any of the BVIs are doing well either.

The problem with all of Florida is that the islands are not getting any attention they need. You can't just drive in and the airports and runways are damaged.

No food or water really means no food or water on the islands.

Read a report that 700 Marines had been sent to help the VIs a few days ago, but haven't read anything since, which is probably a bad sign.

This will take a while to rebuild.

There are a couple of TRT teams down there. Team 1 out of Virginia is one of them

I was reading that Barbuda had 95% of their building damaged and all residents evacuated to other islands.

Sadly I feel american or european hotel/casino chains will buy a lot of property on these islands just to build all inclusives. They will turn into Cancun.
