I just heard back from one of my friends in the village. Most everyone has returned and they are starting to dig themselves out. She said they were determined to have the town open for next year. All of the trails are washed out and their only connection to the world is by boat. Below are some photos she forwarded. Any kind words or comments will be relayed right back to them.
I put this video on youtube to try and spread the word and inspire people to help with the immediate relief efforts and restoration.
