Hurricane Irma brought a handful of devastation in the country, causing many people to lose their homes or be left stranded in the area. One man, whose home was largely affected by the storm, took a quick look at Trump’s mansion also struck by the hurricane.
A total of two of Trump’s properties were largely hit by the hurricane as well, one of the properties being the island of St.Martin in the Carribean.
Another property that belongs to Jack Fleishman, and which is located in the St.Martin’s area, witnessed the horrible happening and quickly snapped a photo of one of Trump’s biggest estates in light of the disaster.
As the report from USA Today states:
‘President Trump’s $17 million “chateau” on the Caribbean island of St. Martin survived Hurricane Irma nearly unscathed, unlike the rest of the French/Dutch island — and in contrast to the fate suffered by other celebrities’ properties in the path of the monster storm still raging in Florida.
Trump’s Chateau des Palmiers, is still standing with hardly a single roof tile lost (although the landscaping is a mess), according to pictures sent to USA TODAY by Jack Fleishman, a Californian who co-owns the heavily damaged Villa Mille Fleurs just above Trump’s place.
The rest of St. Martin was 95% destroyed after Irma hit the island on Sept. 6.
Million-dollar villas and hotels, middle-class homes and the ramshackle abodes of the poor and working-class residents suffered similar fates across the Caribbean from the power of a Category 5 storm: All were reduced to little more than kindling. At least nine people died on the French side.’
Although Trump’s mansion remained complete and unaffected, other celebrities’ estates were hugely affected by the storm’s rage. Such is the case with Richard Branson’s house, which got destroyed in the hurricane’s aftermath, with the report on his behalf stating:
‘We have spent the past two days visiting team members who live on Virgin Gorda and as many people as possible, distr, buying aid, water, and supplies. We have seen first-hand just how ferocious and unforgiving this storm was.’
‘Our thoughts are with all the people and regions hit by Hurricane Irma, and all those in the US communities currently facing the storm. What makes the Virgin Islands unique is its isolated location – every island has been devastated, so there is no support to come from nearby. We must get more help to the islands to rebuild homes and infrastructure and restore power, clean water, and food supplies,’ he added.
It is not often a person can feel a storm’s rage in proportions such as these ones, but when it so happens, the consequences are devastating.
