Por Esto, the local newspaper around here, had an interesting story yesterday.
It seems that when TS Dolly was about to hit us this past weekend, a meeting was held by some of the top authorities on the island about preparations and safety. Except they forgot to invite the Director of Hotels.
As a result, when the harbor was closed at 7:30 PM on Sunday night, every body left on the island was left on the island. No way off. Word was not passed to hotels to let their guests know that if they needed or wanted to get off the island, they better do it before 7:30 PM. As a result, many tourists missed their flights home and day visitors ended up being overnight visitors.
The Director of Hotels is now accusing the Mayor, the Harbor Master and especially the newly appointed Director of Tourism with not doing their jobs. She also wants to know why she was cut out of the loop and not invited to the meeting.
