White Bay, Jost van Dyke, BVI post Hurricane Irma

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.

  1. I hope they are okay. So many people I love are still in the path of this horrendous hurricane. And to top off a horrible week, friends lost their home in Guatemala last night due to an 8.1 earthquake off the Mexican shore.

  2. This is so horrible. Irma has created so much damage as well as so much tragedy. My heart goes out to you as well as your friends and all those affected by this storm. Sending much love and light your way as well as prayers to all those who find themselves in the thick of an impossible rebuild situation. I have many family members that recently lost everything in Houston. The difference is they have a government who will help them rebuild. These islands such as the one you write about doesn’t have that luxury. I’m very sorry.
