All the major roads are opened today the 27th of August 2007, except between Canefield and Pont Casse. Some attraction sites are closed temporaly like Trafalgar falls, the sulphur spring hot river near Scottshead has to be cleaned before a next visit. You have to be very cautious when you drive along the Layou River road, some places are only one way road and some portions of the road are distroyed but manageable.
Our hotel, the stonedge safari hotel in Salisbury lost electricity for 4 days. More than 17 people never showed up to the hotel, even after the hurricane. We didn’t need to go to a shelter, the place was safe with a hurricane of strength 2.
Bye and see you all soon for next hollydays.
