Palm trees in hurricane

We arrived in Cayman Brac on Sunday, hurricane Lili arrived on Monday. The winds were fierce - over 75 mph. When the eye of the hurricane passed over the island there was an eerie calm, 10/1/2002


The hurricane winds blew everything around. All the locals had their windows boarded. All of the guests at the resort (12) stayed in the dining hall talking and drinking "rum concoctions". The resort manager was on CNN as the Cayman Brac correspondent, 10/1/2002

Inside Rebecca's Cave

This cave was named for an 18 month old baby, Rebecca Bodden. She died as a result of the worst hurricane ever recorded in the Cayman Islands on Nov 9, 1932. The Boddens and several other families struggled through 30 feet storm surges and 200mph winds to cross the bluff and seek shelter in this cave during that night. Rebecca died as a result of exposure during the trip, 10/1/2002
