Cruise calls at Grand Turk in question after dock damaged by Hurricane Fiona
The main cruise ship dock in Turks and Caicos suffered damage Tuesday as a strengthening Hurricane Fiona roared across the island destination, raising questions about whether and when cruise calls can resume.
Videos of the 200-foot-long pier at the Grand Turk Cruise Center on the Turks and Caicos island of Grand Turk posted on social media sites show that pieces of its infrastructure have broken off and washed up on a nearby shore.
Hurricane Fiona slammed into Turks and Caicos on Tuesday as a powerful Category 3 storm, with the eye of the storm passing near Grand Turk — the British Overseas Territory’s main island. Fiona was packing winds of up to 115 miles per hour.
