HURRICANE DEAN'S DEVASTATION IN MARTINIQUE

August 29, 2007
Special for THE NEW TIMES HOLLER!

Hurricane Dean's Destructive Effects Described.
This series of videos examines peoples' impressions of Hurricane Dean, which hit the island in mid August, with some views of the destruction. Initially, THE NEW TIMES HOLLER! went to Martinique to conduct interviews with individuals involved with all manners of life in Martinique, but found devastation of the sugar cane and banana crops, damage to homes, with interruptions to electrical and telephone services at times. This presented a universal experience on the inhabitants, and while the destruction was not as bad as the tsunamis in Indonesia last year, it was certainly severe, with people terming it Une castostrophe. In the first video, Virginie Vartel gives her impressions of the Hurricane. In the second, the force of the flooding of La Riviere Chopin can be seen.
