Hurricane Iris

The little island we stopped at during our snorkeling trip was home to a small resort prior to 2001.  In 2001 the island, and the Placencia area, took a direct hit from Category 4 Hurricane Iris and this is the only structure left standing.  Our guide Bernard said most of the wooden structures in Placencia were destroyed by the hurricane and needed to be rebuilt.
