Hurricanes Irma and Maria Recovery

Dear Friends, On September 6th, 2017 and again on September 19th, 2017 the U.S. Virgin Islands were hit by category 5 hurricanes. Hurricane Irma devastated St. Thomas, St. John and Water Island. Hurricane Maria arrived under two weeks later, devastating St. Croix and added further damage to the sister islands.

Over the last months we have been recovering; many beaches, attractions and businesses have reopened. Cruise ships have returned, and some travelers are arriving by air to visit and many to help. We thank you for your prayers, thoughts and support. We look forward to seeing you soon. Wishing you and yours all the best for the holidays!
