In this video you can see the damage to Puerto del Rey Marina in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. It is the largest marina in the Caribbean with 1000 slips and 400 dry stacks. The extent of the damage to the boats is not clear. In general they seemed to have weathered the storm OK, considering they were 20 miles north of the eye of Hurricane Maria.

We chartered out of this marina in 2014. Overall, it looks like very little damage, considering... only a few docks float and the breakwater would have most likely been underwater with the surge. It says a lot on how well the construction of this marina is.

Thanks for posting!

Unfortunately, it's more than can be said about the rest of the island. I've heard back from one relative and a couple of friends, but have not heard anything from the rest of my relatives. I read that 80% of the cell towers are out of service or destroyed. So hopefully they are OK and can't communicate right now.

Puerto Rico was where they were evacuating people from the islands which were devastated by Irma...
