Read Amy’s posts on Facebook about rough seas and someone just posted that the boardwalk at the Tam was gone! Can't confirm the boardwalk part. UPDATE: I think the boardwalk part was fake news...which is a good thing.

Each storm, while the island is "out of the hurricane belt" seems worse.
I was in Oduber (as ann and Judi can testify) during Matthew in 2016, but Sandy just told me how high the water came up at ABC.
They put up some kind of heavy curtain...to at least hinder the ground floor flooding. I can only imagine.

Yikes! :shock: :shock:

Hope the Tam is okay, a lot of the rooms are very close to the water.

Those are amazing photos! I hope there is still some beach left by Nov.

Wow, I just noticed your ticker Tara. It's been awhile since you've been in Aruba, right?

Saw some on the Aruba group. Tagged you, Ronny and Pammy - not sure if that worked?

I saw the pix, thanks. I’m guessing the boardwalk is a quick fix.
