Last October Ana and I visited the Carribean island of St. Martin as a guest of my friend and JetBlue Captain Randel Sands. While we were there, we met Chris Sannon who was working in a dive shop. Chris and I are both photographers, so we became fast friends and had kept in touch since the visit.
The night that Category 5 Hurricane Irma hit St. Martin with 225 mile an hour winds, I wrote to Chris to see if he was ok. Last Friday his wifi had been restored, and he was able to reply. We did this video interview, and he told the story of what happened the night of the storm and since.
