Cayman Island and Jamaica Hurricane Update: All Good!


Good blessed still beautiful morning to everyone. We are all alive, kicking, and had my first coffee already. This is a message received from Robert Stephens in Jamaica. Also Cayman Islanders report they are ok, ready to repair and move on with their routines soon.

Conditions are beginning to slowly improve across the Cayman Islands with all Hurricane Warnings no longer in effect.

Also in Jamaica, the situation is under control with Montego Bay International Airport reopening around 6 pm today, July 4.

Hurricane Beryl was passing the Cayman Islands on Thursday after lashing out on Jamaica and causing destruction through the Caribbean.

Based on all available sources both Jamaica and the Cayman Islands report damages and repairable destruction, with infrastructure for its essential travel and tourism industry in place.

Many trees are down, roads are blocked, and electricity in parts of Jamaica is out, but people are alive and safe.

The pool areas and beaches around beach resorts need cleanup, but there are no reports of injuries, casualties or major disruptions.

Tourism resilience seems to be winning at least in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, now concentrating on Yucatan in Mexico, the next target for Hurricane Beryl.
