Hurricane Irma

September 29, 2017

The entire park has electric power.

The public areas of the park have been cleared, now the seawall and individual homes needs to be repaired.

There is no internet because Comcast has not yet brought its service into the park.  When you get here, please check the radio on your roof.  If it has come loose from its tether it may be upside down and have water in it, which means it is no longer functional and needs to be replaced.

More Detailed Reports:

We still have a lot to be thankful for, but now that some folks have gone down there and checked it out, it appears that we have sustained more significant damage than originally reported.

The seawall is damaged in two areas, each about 300′ long; one area is along the canal between Barbados and Blackbeard and the other area is between Galleon and Dubloon.


seawall2As of today there is power only in units 1-17 (Galleon), but the folks who are down there have cleared the roads and the clubhouse debris.  Power is supposed to be returned by 9/22, and you will be notified by email as soon as it is on.

First reports:

Port Carlos Cove did not sustain major damage!  We had only about a one foot storm surge.

Almost every home has some damage, but most of it is minor, like loose or lost skirting and shutters or lost plants.  Two homes sustained major damage and the owners have been notified.  What we have is a big mess left  to clean up.

The big cement tower in front of the clubhouse went down yesterday and today emergency crews are there removing the wiring from it, we need to remove the cement.

As the storm sucked the water out of the canal, the bottom of the seawall was also pulled out in a couple of spots but most of it is fine.

Glen stayed through the storm and is safe.  He has no cell phone service at this time.  Judy is back but we have no electric or phone service yet at the park.

Some of our neighbors are packing up their Northern homes and are heading down to the park as soon as the roads are passable, and the fuel supply returns.

We have a lot to be thankful for.
