    Default Punta Cana Maria Damage Report

    Good morning
    It looks like the damage to Bavaro was more noticeable than Irma. I see via a web cam that a Palapa on the beach broke.
    Any other reports?

    Previously, I've seen Palapas topple on the beach in good weather...the termites destroy the post under the sand and they just fall-over...add a little wind to that and WHAM! The government has ordered all structures less than 60 meters from the tide line be removed immediately...a little late and a dollar short, I guess.

    Loads of rain here still in PC. Some trees down that I can see on the golf course in Cocotal. But the winds were basically equal to a Tropical Storm. Probably a lot of flooding but zip have not looked around yet. I would say we got away a lot easier than the weather clowns on TV would led you to believe.

    The PUJ airport weather records today show that you had gusts overnight and early today in the region 55 to 65 mph, strong tropical storm winds but the sustained wind speed rarely met the tropical storm threshold of 39mph sustained for one minute or more.

    Yesterdays records show the pick up from afternoon and a near hurricane force gust.

    The gusts did the damage.

    Power in Cocotal is on. Went off for 20 minutes earlier, but since it was back on yesterday has been steady. I guess they might have to turn off power if they are fixing something. That would be normal.
