Comments: Power has been out since about 1:30 AM (still out). Very little rain after midnight, but lottsa wind south, SW then west. Max gust 60 knots not too bad. Lots of trees down in the yard, but no serious damage to the house. However, got a call at 6:30 my 34 Hunter is on the beach at Sandy Ground. Must have held all night but when the wind and swells came from the west (right into Sandy Ground), that was it. Understand there are many boats on the beach, including some cargo boats. Report was from stormcarib.com. Individual that posted has a Weather Station is online at anguilla-weather.com but has not updated since 1 AM.
