If you have followed my page for any length of time you have heard me speak of a tiny little island in the BVI called Jost van Dyke. Two friends and I have spent many a night on this little island solving the problems of the world while listening to great music and partaking of a little rum.
We have friends who work on this island, live on this island and own businesses on this island. And now everything is gone. The reports say 99% of all building have severe damage, with most of the 99% being complete loss. I’m not sure what to say, but thank goodness so many are still alive.
Irma hit this little 3 sq. mile island with forces not seen in over 100 years and the results are devastating. One Love, Ivan’s Stress Free, Soggy Dollar Bar, Corsairs are all feared to be gone. Buildings have simply vanished.
The sad thing is most of the buildings may not be rebuilt. Most don’t have a lot of money. Most don’t have insurance. I’m not sure what the future holds, but I hope the people are able to rebuild.
