On September 6, Hurricane Irma hit the Caribbean, including the island of Saint Barth, with sustained winds of 185 miles per hour and gusts of up to 218 miles per hour, destroying 10% of the houses, damaging almost all the villas and resorts and some of the crucial infrastructures of the island.

Emmanuel Jacques, Managing Attorney, Emmanuel Jacques Almosnino Law Firm (EJA), has traveled from Saint Barth following the storm. On September 14, 2017, he held an informational forum at the Restaurant at Rose Hill regarding the St. Barth’s recovery and how to file insurance claims. The event was streamed live on Facebook. The video recording can be viewed by clicking here. You can also read an outline of Mr. Jacques’ remarks and an insurance claim fact sheet distributed during the program.

Mr. Jacques has been monitoring the latest developments at Saint Barth. He said that, despite the damage to many of the homes and the some of the island’s infrastructure, there were no fatalities and the roads and government buildings sustained virtually no damage. The Saint Barth government is already back at work and electricity has been restored to the island. He also said the damages will be covered by the insurance companies.
