This just in:

Here is an early report on storm damage in Bonaire from Omar.

"We are getting pounded by Omar since last night. Divi Resort has

taken a great deal of damage. One of our dive boats is a total loss.

We spent the morning reacting to docks breaking up, the Balashi Bar

being destroyed, and the dive pier breaking up as well. We were able

to save the dive gear from the lockers and the tanks from the pier

before the lockers broke away into 6-9 foot seas that pounded us

through the process. As I left the walkway in front of the dive shop

was breaking up. The front of the shop is covered with plywood but I

am not sure it will not break loose in the heavy seas that are

pounding it. Worse weather expected tonight. The reefs are taking a

pounding and I think when this storm finally moves off we will

see much more damage. Very disheartening to have this happen as the

season is about to begin.

Downtown on the waterside the damage is extensive so far. I must say

I was amazed this morning to still see sailboats tied to the moorings

in front of the water road. I have heard some of them are on shore but

cannot confirm."

Any reports in Curacao or Aruba?
