Sandy may well be remembered more for what it is about to do along the East Coast, dubbed a Franken Storm, ready to wreck havoc with tropical rains AND snow. Still, I think the storm will be remembered in Cuba, where it seems to have created the most damage, save for maybe in Haiti, a country so poor and unable to cope that any storm would likely kill some Haitians. Sounds like the official tally in Cuba was 11 dead, with 43 dead across the Caribbean.
Thinking about Cuba, I can’t imagine that the damage caused will actually get repaired. The country had a dilapidated feel to it with a definite sense that if something new fell off, it certainly wasn’t going to get fixed any time soon.
Reports thus far from the Bahamas have been pretty good. Heard good news from Andros South and Benry Smith, both from Andros, and Black Fly from Abaco. Seems like the Bahamas has made it through the worst of it pretty well.
If you have reports, please share.
