i used to keep my boat in St.Martin, sold it in January. There was never a storm like this in SXM. The airport is gone. The marinas are gone. hopefully they have electricity and running water in 6-8 weeks. The 4 biggest and "structurally sound" gov't buildings did not make it. You can pretty much say STT, BVI, and SXM will not be cruise ports for some time to come.The physical airport building lost a lot of roof and is basically flooded, but the airport is open and military and commercial rescue flights are arriving and departing without problems.
The port is receiving rescue cruises (like Royal Caribbean) and military resupply ships.
Both sides of the island have electricity and water being provided, neighborhood by neighborhood.
What are the government buildings you are referring to?
