Comments: Report from Jeff from Storm Carib.com: This just in from Caicos Beach Resort on South Caicos as of 8:45AM. "Most utility poles are down. As far as is known, many of the roofs are off, very strong winds last night. Right now, no one reported hurt. People stayed in shelters or inside. Under strong winds and moderate rain right now. Water level came up high, and its not clear what flooding there may be. Weather still strong so little opportunity to investigate outside. No one in this update has been to town yet. Wind did move some pickup trucks sideways 30-40 feet. Any temporary structures were blown away. Anything that wasn't secured was blown away. The bay side has receded, drawn in to the storm, maybe less than a foot of water left at the moment." Jeff reports speaking with Alden Durham who said the storm's greatest impact was from 1030-1130 AM local lasting for 6 hours. Debris hit his home with water leaking through the windows, door and roof in South Caicos.
