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.
