Yeah as long as this already is I had to leave some things out, like the non-US islands not getting coverage and some other angles. Emotional trauma? Absolutely a huge deal. After my mom went through Irma and saw what St. Thomas looked like afterward, then being on St. Croix and knowing what was coming with Maria… she was afraid people there had no idea what was about to happen, that they wouldn’t prepare enough, that it would look like St. Thomas after. Thankfully it wasn’t quite that bad, but still, when you know what you’re in for it’s worse. That’s one thing we’ve discussed… if we can ever get them out, they at least have a home to come back to. This completely sucks for those who lost everything and are now at the mercy of what seems to be an incompetent local government.
