    I saw a video earlier and it looks like both Bingo and Lindas will have to deal with water inside the restaurants. Water appeared to cover the deck area.
    There are several videos on this public Facebook site (should be able to few even if not a member of FB). https://www.facebook.com/CaribbeanWeatherCenter/

    I've seen reports that Marriott rented buses to help their guests get to the airport and ABC Jeep Tours are using their big vehicles to help out the Red Cross.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Can you imagine having wet clothes or shoes on a flight home, miserable. Jon said, what if you fell? He's definitely my husband, I"m a clutz! I told him well, I guess if its raining hard we know we need to have a change of clothes in the bookbag. We usually check our carryon coming home to just not deal with it.

    I was thinking about the arrivals getting off the plane and being greeted by ankle deep water. Your scenario is much worse!!!

    i thought of someone like Ms Daisy (Aruba Ace's mom) ....the chance of falling and being injured are certainly an issue with water.

    Many Arubans have a lot of water in their homes.
    Numerous vehicles destroyed.

    Please, if you have information or photos....please post.
