It's interesting to read the news report on DB supplied by the Sister Islands Tourism site saying that the damage to the Caymans is minor and everything is almost back to normal. I read an email from someone who lives there and works in the dive industry saying the opposite: that there was chaos and incredible amounts of damage- that the islands were ruined and will have to be completely rebuilt.
Undoubtedly someone in the midst of the hurricane would see Hell on Earth....anyone care to comment or update?

Hi Erik,

The news release talked about Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, those are two islands near each other, but a good distance from Cayman itself. Could be there was a lot of difference in damage suffered in different areas. What I've seen from Cayman looked pretty bad.


I'm so sorry to hear of this, and I really hope the damage can be repaired soon.

wow. erik i'm glad you put up this post. the reports i had heard were for brac and little cayman and i had no idea that grand had such devastating destruction. i used to work there and after seeing the pictures managed to get in touch with a buddy of mine who's is still there, now with red baron divers. he said the destruction is indescribable. luckily their boats made it through and they're planning on going back at the end of october to get things back in order. as i'm sure it is for many others, cayman is a special place to me. i'm still in shock over the pictures.

Wow is right, worse than I had heard. There has been almost nothing in the US press.
