Daylight revealed the full extent of the damage on the island and in short words… It’s devastating.
As you can see in the before and after, Hurricane Irma made a direct impact to the island. The full extent of the damage is till unknown as a lot of the roads are still impassible with power-lines still down and debris in the road. However what little we do know is that Maho beach is completely ruined from reports and friends in the area.
Here is photos of airport after Hurricane Irma.
Inside the airport there seems to be just as much damage..
The full extent of Maho beach remains uncertain however a photo shared to us show what you would think was a hotel under construction actually damaged by Irma.
Although the warning, some people still tried to get close to the force of Hurricane Irma.
Video shared to us from friends in St Maarten continue to shows the devastation.
