Tropical Storm Nate Has Come and Gone
Tropical Storm Nate wreaked havoc on the bay of San Juan del Sur and surrounding areas as it passed through on October 5, 2017.
Luckily we remained safe and dry in our home. Our only inconvenience was that we were without electricity for a couple of days. This is not the case for so many others.
San Juan del Sur got hit hard.
Of the hundred or boats that are normally moored in the bay only a couple remain.
Several crashed into the shore and now have extensive damage. Others are completely destroyed. Some sank. We’ve heard a few lucky ones escaped out into the ocean waters before the worst of the storm hit.
Most every beach restaurant has suffered serious damage. Nearly all lost their front decks. For some the blow is even worse.
Many individuals living in low lying areas lost their homes and everything they own. Lives were also lost.
Our hearts go out to everyone effected.
Now that the rains have stopped and the sky has cleared we are looking at ways we can help those in need. We will work together with friends and neighbors to help rebuild our community and those surrounding it.
