Watch: Incredible Time-Lapse Video of Hurricane Irma From Sonesta Maho Resort (Video/Photos)

I have to be completely honest, I’d never heard of Jonathan Falwell before Hurricane Irma hit the island of St. Maarten/St. Martin. Well, it turns out that he was staying at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort when the hurricane hit. If you haven’t already, head over to his Twitter page and check on some of the photos and updates he’s posted.

Below is a time lapse video from Jonathan that he filmed with a GoPro that he’d mounted in his room before heading to the shelter. He later found the camera outside the hotel. If you scroll down you will also see photos he took during and after the hurricane.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times 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 that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
