Clearing out from Hurricane Earl

This was an old telephone pole on the side of Maho's driveway. WAPA (St. John's Water and Power Authority) knew the pole was in danger of falling. They installed a new pole and moved the wires but left the old pole where it was standing. With a little help from Hurricane Earl, it came down - not across the driveway as we expected but on the deck of a staff tent. Luckily, the old pole was so covered in vines and weeds that it made a soft landing and did very little damage to the deck. Thanks Steve for taking care of that little problem.

Hurricane Earl and Tropical Storms Otto and Tomas created lots of extra work for Maho staff and volunteers this Fall, but everyone pitched in and worked hard to complete necessary repairs. Final repair work is now being completed in the staff housing section as we finish preparations for a busy 2010-2011 season!
