Life gets quickly back to normal, but we shouldn't forget those who were hit hard, with homes, cars and belongings under flood waters. The storm started in the Western Caribbean, went East quickly toward St. Croix, then slowed down and crawled to St. Martin, then stalled and bounced around in the area for about a day. Finally it turned south and away from us.

The picture here was taken 3 days after the storm, at Carimar Beach Club on Meads Bay. It shows that Anguilla's famous beaches were not destroyed by the storm (in fact, some increased in size). The storm dropped 20 inches of rain in 2 days and caused massive flooding in every low valley, including a major flood in Anguilla's capital, The Valley. The beaches and hotels were not flooded and received much less damage.
