NEW YORK -- Although preliminary reports from Hurricane Lenny's
gusty, late-season visit to 16 Caribbean islands reveal more damage
from flooding and sea surges than structural battering, several
properties are closed through December.
Here is a rundown:Due to beach erosion and flooding, Cap Juluca on Anguilla will
be closed until after Jan. 1 with no firm reopening date set.Lenny's stall over St. Maarten/St. Martin for several hours on
Nov. 19 caused flooding in a number of places, although structural
damage was less than originally predicted.On the Dutch side, reopenings for Maho Beach Hotel,
Caravanserai, the Royal Islander, Great Bay Beach Hotel and Divi
Little Bay Beach are pending assessments by insurance
companies.La Samanna on the French side is closed through the
Christmas-New Year period; Le Meridien is closed at least through
Nov. 30.Damage to the roof of the new casino at Divi Carina Bay on St.
