i do not know if the pastor for st anne's is the rector for alto vista.
st anne's is about 2 miles +/- from alto vista
re: the storm last august
we were in aruba when that storm came thru.
st anne's roof was damaged, badly.
other buildings on property were badly damaged.
we have been in aruba for some INCREDIBLE thunderstorms. the storm last year hit early morning and was just unbelievable, but we did not know there had been a tornado spawned, til later in the morning.we took a ride over late in the day and checked it out.
will check to see were those photos are so i can post.

so i did a little digging and i do have some on my gallery.
here is a photo my husband took 11 months ago about 24 hours after the storm.
an unusually heavy morning thunderstorm nailed aruba with lots of rain, high winds and vivid lightning. a tornado spun off (and i do not know if it was ever verified as a tornado) and hit some buildings. one of which was st anne's (santa anna) catholic church in the Noord neighborhood.
and in keeping with the topic of the original question, a small view of the cemetery is in the photo as well.
