Passing Storms: The Survival of St. Thomas
In September 2017, the US Virgin Islands were hit hard by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Now, those living on the 32-square-mile island of St. Thomas must learn how to rebuild—and thrive—in the face of unbelievable loss.
Kemo Rojas already lost everything during the first hurricane. Then another hit—and the wind and waves still haunt his dreams.
