Hurricane Beryl

July 03, 2024 1 Comment

As news has reached us that Hurricane Beryl has now passed through St Vincent and the Grenadines after inflicting terrible damage, we wanted to send a message of support to our friends and colleagues on Mustique and St Vincent, with a special mention to those on the smaller islands of Canuoan, Union and Mayreau who have been the hardest hit.

Some of our neighbouring islands are left without homes, water and power. Communications are still disrupted in much of the affected area. We send our love and prayers to all who are suffering.

We are so grateful that our little Pink House on Mustique has been spared with minimal damage inflicted.

We are very glad to have had some news from our colleagues Yuoca and Patchace who run the boutique.

We send all our love and support to Yuoca who is on St Vincent where they have been less fortunate, with many roofs down and no power or water. Yuoca is housing her neighbour and their family who lost their roof.

Mustique has not been badly hit in comparison to our sister islands, but as the internet was down there was a worrying delay until we did eventually hear directly from Patchace and now can confirm that she and her little ones are safe.

Flor, who manages the Atelier on St Vincent, reported that she and her family have luckily avoided the worst, although her neighbourhood has been badly damaged.
Mustique residents are affected deeply - with friends, family and colleagues living throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines.  We send our very best wishes and our thoughts are with each and every one of them.

All of us at Pink House HQ are thinking of those still in the path of this destructive hurricane, wherever they may be.

I am 90 now and have not been back to Mustique since the 1990’s
I had some wonderful times. I first arrived while sailing a Morgan 48 around Caribbean and enjoyed several nights at Basils. Gustav Dalla Valle still lived there (before he moved to Napa, Ca where I reside).
The last two trips of several, We stayed at the Shogun House after Arnie had moved to his new place.
I am so happy that the Island and its residents survived that vicious hurricane with minimal destruction.
