Afya is responding to Hurricane Beryl, which made landfall in the Caribbean as a Category 4 storm. The storm roared through communities with 150 mph violent winds, intense rainfall, and a life-threatening storm surge devastating communities across multiple islands. While downgraded to Tropical Depression Beryl, it has wreaked havoc in Texas, with 2 million Texans lost power and eight reported dead from the storm.

The scale of the disaster is staggering. Preliminary damage assessments conducted by Grenada’s National Disaster Management Agency and Ministry of Health reveal that the storm has left a devastating impact. Approximately 98% of structures on Grenada’s Carriacou and Petit Martinique islands have been damaged or destroyed, including the roof of Carriacou’s Princess Royal Hospital. Mount Gay Psychiatric Hospital on the island of Grenada also sustained significant damage, as reported by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
