Watch: CNN Airs Segment Showing Signs of Recovery in Sint Maarten

I wanted to share this video segment that was produced by CNN showing some of the signs that Sint Maarten is starting to recover. I apologize in advance for the quality, or lack of, but it’s the best version I could find of the clip.

Important to note is that, while this video does show a glimpse into some of the advances that had been made on the island after Irma, things there have progressed even further to date. Several grocery stores are open, many more stores, restaurants and banks are open again, and gas is becoming more readily available. In addition, electricity and water service has been restored to more areas — not all — on the island.

Still a tremendous amount of work to do, but it’s important to recognize and celebrate every milestone as the island recovers from Irma.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited, more than 10 years ago! Since then, I've spent a lot of time here getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website where I share my thoughts and love about Saint-Martin (French side) and Sint Maarten (Dutch side) with the world. I hope you enjoy it!
