September 17, 1989 was a rough night at the Holger Danske Hotel in Christiensted, US Virgin Islands. Hurricane Hugo walloped the entire Caribbean area causing heavy damage. The water level rose so high that a sailboat was dumped right into the lobby.
The Holger Danske was devastated a second time in 1995 when Hurricane Marilyn pummeled the region.
NFA worked with the Holger Danske’s owners on the financial recovery of both disasters. Despite heavy losses sustained from the hurricanes, the hotel today remains one of the most popular in the Virgin Islands.
