Cayman was shaken by Tropical Storm Grace, and although it was officially not quite in the Hurricane class, many people were not prepared for the damage it caused. Trees on roofs, on vehicles, broken walls and driveways and roads were blocked. All up the West coast of the island, from South Church Street all the way up to West Bay, crews of people were busy cleaning and clearing on the days following the storm. Smith Barcadere was were several large trees had toppled over. There was damage to fences and more trees blown over on West Bay Road at the end of Eastern Avenue and opposite Seven Mile Shops a large tree had fallen on top of a blue tour bus. Further up West Bay Road crews were sweeping and raking the debris from outside Cost U Less. A twisted canopy and light poles could be seen at the front of the Westin, and the entrance to the Governor’s house was cracked and broken, and there were several large sea grape trees broken like twigs at Governor’s Beach. All around the south end of the Kimpton Hotel grounds, large trees had been blown over and fencing knocked down. Cleaning and clearing continued all over the weekend.
