Yesterday we shared a video of North Shore Road that was taken one month after Irma struck St. John. (Click here if you missed it.) Today we’d like to share a video we took down Centerline Road – from Cruz Bay all the way to Coral Bay. (The video continues to Coral Bay. That portion is still uploading as of 8 a.m. Saturday. We will share it as soon as we can.) We recorded this video last Monday, October 9th. We uploaded it in real time, so you can all see the current state of the island. (It’s been split into two videos due to length.)
The Centerline video is harder to watch than the North Shore video. The trees located mid-island are still stripped bare in many places. The areas where mudslides appeared are visible. Power lines dangle over the roadway. Chateau Bordeaux has been destroyed, as are many houses in the hillsides.
St. John has a long road ahead. I thank you all for your continued love and support.
