Subject: Cayman Brac / Brac Reef Beach Resort info



My mother is Kathy Shroy one of the managers of Brac Reef Beach Resort. I

have been in contact with her off and on over the past 6 hours. She said

that Brac Reef is a total loss. What is still standing will have to be torn

down.The Lobby, office, gift shop, spa, bar, and restaurant are all

completely demolished. They lost the roof off of the top floor's rooms and

have major damage to the bottom floor's rooms. The staff housing has roof

damage but isn't too bad off.

The 30 tourists who stayed at the hotel are all fine the other 10 who went

to a shelter are also safe. If you could post this on stormcarib for their

families that would be great..They are planning to fly them out this

afternoon as long as they can get the plane in.

I also heard from Perry McLaughlin that all 200 people who stayed on

Little Cayman are safe. There is a lot of damage to the roads but it looks

like they got lucky as far as major damage goes.

Thanks for all your hard work to keep us updated.

Carolyn Shroy

I just spoke with them this morning and in fact it is totally destroyed. It appears they will have to completely rebuild. But I'll be one of the first ones back when they do because it was such a great place with wonderful people.
