“I CAME FROM THE NORTH ESCAPING CONVENTION
THE MODERN INVENTION THAT WON’T LET ME BE
TO THE SHORES OF ST. MAARTEN WITH MY FICTION ADDICTION
TO RESTART THE FIRE A DREAMER’S REMEDY”
The trail of destruction in my travel wake from Manchester, Westminster Bridge, London Bridge and Barcelona, continues with hurricane Irma’s devastation of St. Maarten. Ninety per cent of all buildings have been damaged with at least a third having been completely destroyed. The following images were shot less than 10 months ago during my last visit.
According to the latest reports, the military has been called in to restore order after the looting and violence which has broken out after the storm.
The Dutch government has advised survivors to shelter in place as hurricane Jose follows in Irma’s wake.
