Islanders who weathered the passage of Hurricane Hugo commonly refer to September 17, 1989 as “the Longest Night.” For all of us, memories of Hugo’s fury and aftermath are vivid.

Now, nearly six years to the day after Hugo — on September 15, 1995 — another hurricane has torn through the islands. For residents of St. Thomas, St. John, Hassel and Water Island, Marilyn has proved to be the longest night yet.

We’re still here, and the US Virgin Islands’ aquamarinewaters are waiting. If you have plans to visit, do try to keep those plans … help us to recover!

Look to these pages for up and coming features and press releases about the storm, and the Virgin Islands’ recovery drive. We are gathering material now. Please visit often!
