Rudy and Shirley Senarighi from Sturgeon Bay are doing their part directly in helping victims of the hurricanes in the Virgin Islands. The couple has been there since November 16 and will stay until December 7 helping the Red Cross. As of last week less than one-fourth of the power has been restored to the island, according to Shirley Senarighi. She says the locals are still reeling from the shock of loss.
Senerighi says the Virgin Islands escaped major damage from Hurricane Irma and even helped neighboring islands in the Caribbean. Unfortunately, Hurricane Maria hit the island hard two weeks later and the rebuilding process will take a long time, according to Senerighi.
