Hurricane Tomas’ Deadly Path of Destruction

November 10, 2010

I just wanted to share with you some of the terrible images of the devastation caused on St Lucia by hurricane Tomas.

This was a Category 1 hurricane, so it didn’t pack the wind speeds of a more dangerous Category 4 or 5, but yet it still left 14 people dead, caused $500m worth of damage and placed the whole island in a state of emergency.

Saint Lucia is one of the world’s most popular honeymoon destinations and will suffer in the short-term. But I know that St Lucians are a resilient bunch and no doubt the clean-up has already begun and so too the recovery.
