Watch: Stunning Documentary-Style Video Filmed in Saint Martin During and After Irma

Wow. That’s all I could think as I watched this documentary-style video shot by an American, Derek van Dijk, who was living in Orient Bay when Hurricane Irma slammed into Saint Martin. Take the time to watch the entire video, it’s very informative and does a good job of showing different parts of the island, as well as different scenes from during the storm, after, the chaos that ensued, driving around to see the damage, and, finally, the evacuation on day 7.

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.
