Give it time...Irma has only left the area in the last 12 hours. Jose in not predicted into the area next weekend. Checking the status of private islands is a low priority.

I agree. Give it some time.

Even getting information on the damage to the larger islands is taking time since many are being assessed and because communications have been down.

Right now all the attention is taking place for St Thomas and St Maarten which suffered a lot of damage -- many people have to be evacuated from those islands.

Private islands will be checked out later.

John Heald stated on his blog HMC minimal beach erosion and no damage. No reported injuries.
