As we can see from the graphic, Omar is now a Hurricane and is predicted to strike Aruba's cousin SSS islands, as a Cat. 2.
ArubaAmy has posted some storm damage photos below:

Some "reports" I have collected thus far...
"...few boats at Hadicurari fishermen center were destroyed by the strong sea current. ...Portions of the Sasaki highway are also flooded...All schools on the island are closed today because of the weather situation..."
"Big waves have slammed the Pinchos Pier, and a big chunk of it is already destroyed. Some volunteers are helping to carry some items of this popular restaurant back to land, but the waves are crashing through, making this 'rescue effort' very dangerous."
"...Zeerover, Brisas del Mar are pretty hit- and we saw water coming out of FF [Flying Fishbone] onto the street. ..."
"...Luckily Old Man and a Sea was not hurt too bad, the gazebo did come down.. and dirt..."
Can anyone add to this list?
