Nevis

In Nevis, there were no warning systems able to notify residents of the storm. As such, citizens only became aware of the storm when they saw it approaching. Police traveled throughout the island, warning individuals to board up their homes and take cover. Most homes, however, were made of wood and could not hold up to the storm’s fury. Although it is difficult to estimate the death toll with any certainty, it is estimated that 13 people lost their lives.
