This tragic tale was mentioned by JEREMY W. PETERS in his Sept 27, 2017, New York Times report. “The governor, Kenneth E. Mapp, said he expects that the hospitals on St. Thomas and St. Croix, the most populated islands, will have to be torn down and rebuilt. In St. Thomas, not far from where cruise ships have long unloaded vacationers, tarps and trash cans now collect dripping water from the ceiling of the emergency room, which has to evacuate any critical patients to the mainland.
On St. Croix, one of the few working cell towers went down after someone stole the generator powering it. The authorities had to ease the strict curfew after bodies started piling up at the morgue because people could not stay out long enough to bury those who had passed away of natural causes since the storms.”
“…Reinforcing the sense of despair, St. Croix was hit especially hard by Maria after being spared the worst of Irma’s ferocity. And what had been a staging ground there for relief operations for St. Thomas and St. John was suddenly thrown into a state of emergency.”
This picture, to the left, is of Hurricane Maria was captured on CNN shows the enormous size of the Hurricane system. It covered all of the islands at the same time and the eye of the storm approaching St. Croix and seemed to be motionless as it lingered over the island. the destruction was great.
