We just talked to Kendra from Long Caye, the owner of the dive shop on our island. She and her husband Jim just arrived on the caye, returning after they evacuated on Saturday. They brought our construction crew out and our groundskeeper, Apolitico, as well. She reports that she is amazed at how good everything looks. She estimates that the wind blew about 60 mph, with winds coming from the West, which is super good news for us because we are on the east end of the island! She said that there looks like there was very little storm surge (this is what we were worried about), and that in fact instead of losing land, they gained more, because the storm piled up more coral rocks on their east side. A few trees are down, but none of their buildings or roofs are damaged. They will contact us again later after they have had time to walk around our property. HOORAY! A giant relief.
