That was far weaker than the Category 5 monster which devastated the Bahamas earlier in the week, but it still brought surging waters that flooded even elevated homes. The main road through the island was also severely damaged.
Photos showing massive buckling from the flooding were shared on social media Saturday morning by local TV stations.
