Bouncing back

Getting back to normal
Originally uploaded by Steve_Mc
It's been only a weekend since Hurricane Omar side-swiped us, but some of the most badly affected places are already bouncing back.

The road from Soufriere to Scott's head was so damaged it was impassable, but by yesterday it was open again. Better still for the people of Scott's Head, electricity was also restored!

Lenny vs Omar

Two views of the road south to Scott's Head. Left - post Hurricane Lenny, 1999. Right, during Hurricane Omar 2008 (thanks Neg!).

Catching many by surprise, Hurricane Omar passed by, and like Lenny in 1999, side-swiped our west coast.

Omar and Lenny

Hurricen Omar's west to east track reminds me of Hurricane Lenny in 1999 - the first to travel in that direction within the Caribbean. This view is of the main Scott's Head to Soufriere road just after Lenny.
