Hurricane Omar St.Kitts & Nevis Aftermath (Pics)

So I decided to do a little picture story on the Aftermath of Hurricane Omar. The Hurricane didn’t hit my island (St. Kitts) directly nor did it do very much damage (relative), but it did affect other caribbean island much worse. The following are some Hurricane Omar Aftermath Pictures, please click ont he images to see the full size image:

Crazy waves AFTER Hurricane Omar passed us by. This is the Carribean Sea, it’s usually much much calmer than the Atlantic Ocean side of the island.

This is supposed to be the main road that connects the main city on the island (Basseterre – as the locals refer to it “Town”) everything else besides the main city is a village except the tourist area and suburbs. The waves were so high it brought all the sand and sea debris onto the island’s roads and structures by the shoreline.

If you look closely at the left of this image there are soem waves hitting the rocks and going over. Right past those rocks is the main road which runs on the shoreline right in front of the Island’s main city. Again these waves are after the hurricane passed us by.

These two pictures are from the Bird Rock Beach Hotel. The Muslims have been praying Eid Salaah here for the past two Eids, we are just going to have to figure something out for our next Eid prayer. I happen to live one house down from his hotel, but I’m on a hill, so the elevation was good protect, after Allah’s Protection. I did step outside my house while the Hurricane was passing by just to see how strong it is, it wasn’t that strong, but because the water levels rose all the rocks, and sea debris came up onto the land and caused all this damage to the Hotel. This place is basically gone, dont knwo how long they’re going to take to get it back in business. In the left pic, in case you were wondering that is a boat on land, and to the right is what used to be the Hotel parking lot.

This is a picture of how the hurricane approached the island. You can see the dense clods approaching the island here. The landscape is of Frigate Bay, the tourist area of the island.

This is the crazy amount of water thsi hurricane left behind, The tourism area is on a fairly flat piece of land on the island, making it highly susceptible to flooding. Pictured above is what it did to the golf course. The large structure int he back is the Marriott Hotel & Resort. If anyone is coming, let me know, I think I can still get a student discount, which means rooms for like $100/night(compared to like $300).

This picture is actually from a friend’s Facebook Album, he lives in Dominica. Dominica is south of St. Kitts, a lot more south. Slight changes in water levels have huge impacts on small islands.

    As Salaamu Alaikum,

    Wa Alaikum As Salaam wa RahmatuLahi wa Barakatu Bro Danish,

    Thank you for your timely reply. I am well alHamduliLah and hope/pray that the same is true for you. I would like to locate a masjid when I am in St Kitts, if one exist. I read what you said about Eid prayer taking place at the Bird Rock Beach Hotel which is where I will be staying, but I’m only there until the 26th. In addition, I recall conversing online with a sister on a matrimonial website several years ago who said she was from St Kitts. I estimate that she would now be be about 63, wears glasses I think, is of African descent, thin and brown complexion. I vaguely recall her name being similar to Ja’alin-naaz. If she is known I would like to also inquire about her. Again, thank you for helpfullness, and may Allah ta ‘aala grant you abundance and success–Ameen!

    Your brother in faith,
    Haazim Muneer

    As Salaamu Alaikum Bro Danish,

    If you could tell me where Jumah House is located that would be very helpful in providing a possible base of contact with the ummat for us and would help with my inquiry.

    Jazaka-Allah khair,
    hm
