Comments: So far the general damage seem to be coastal. A few power lines are reported down throughout the island. Parts of the island's main road are said to be blocked with debris and water. The bayroad in Basseterre is said to be impassable as the sea has deposited a lot of debris. A few trees in the Independence Square are reported down and banners in the main town area have been torn down. So far no deaths or major damage have been reported.
