Mayor Jeff Collier spoke with local news outlets and detailed the devastation. “Well, we’re just getting out to do our initial survey. And what we’re seeing is quite a bit of devastation. We’ve got trees down all over the place. Power lines. Of course, electricity has been shut off to the entire Island over 24 hours now. Also a main road coming to the Island – our only road coming to the Island has been closed since yesterday morning also. So we’ve got a lot of work to get done. We haven’t made it to all the areas of the Island yet. The west end is where the most vulnerable places usually are. The beach front areas we haven’t been able to get there yet. So there’s a lot of damage here on the Island.”
