Local Family Rides Out Hurricane in Virgin Islands


Beth Seals, Zippo Manufacturing Company’s general counsel, was enjoying a vacation with her husband and three young children earlier this month when she heard the news that Hurricane Irma was headed straight for the Virgin Islands — where they were vacationing.

They couldn’t get a flight out of St. John so they ended up riding out the hurricane in a bedroom of the resort where they were staying.

You can hear more of Beth’s story on Tuesday’s LiveLine. but more than her story, she wants to tell people to remember the people affected by Hurricane Irma — and later Maria — will need help for years, not just weeks and months.

These are before and after pictures of the foliage at the resort where the Seals family stayed, and rode out Hurricane Irma.
