Cayman Islands

Little Cayman power warriors

Only hours after Paloma's worst winds died down, Little Cayman's two resident linesmen were out assessing the damage.

Undaunted by 138 downed and damaged power poles on the island, Waide Moore and Philburn 'Bujo' Ayton rolled up their sleeves and got down to work. Busy from dawn to dusk, the team managed to restore power to Southern Cross Club just two days after the storm.

CUC has since joined the linesmen in their recovery effort and power was restored to Little Cayman Beach Resort today (Wednesday).

Power is expected to be back up at the Village Square, Paradise Villas and the airport before the end of this week.
