The road to Petite Savanne is open, we visited today and met residents collecting their belongings and some who have remained throughout.
What I had not realised was the tremendous damage to Dubique, Fond St Jean and Bagatelle. I met a delightful elderly lady who had been rescued from her roof and heard other horrifying tales of people cut out of collapsed buildings and washed away hundred of yards. The Police are doing an excellent job of sharing supplies but there is clearly great need especially amongst those who were poor before the Storm. Thanks to those who sponsored water and donated clothes.
Tomorrow we remember the dead and the bereaved at 12.00 in Roseau Market and simultaneously elsewhere, but please let us remember the living and traumatised as well.
