Jamaica: Inspecting Hurricane Damage

Fyr has a look around the Saint Thomas river in Jamaica to inspect the damage wrought by hurricanes Dennis and Emily.


  • Hi David,

    You might want to specify that this is St Thomas, Jamaica, and not the BVI. I myself was misled by the headline.

  • Sorry, that should be St Thomas in the USVI!

  • Sorry for this third correction–the post DOES refer to St Thomas in Jamaica. In the second comment I was simply correcting myself for saying that the headline implied it referred to the BVI. Have I confused everybody sufficiently?

  • Not at all – I was the one who was obviously confused and responsible for confusing everyone. I think some Jamaican geography lessons are in store for me. Thanks so much Georgia.
