    Hi - anyone know if sgu is as likely to get hit by hurricanes as other caribbean schools? I'm trying to get in touch with someone who works there to ask this question, but I thought I'd see if anyone here knows. Having to move midway through school sounds like a nightmare.

    How about looking for places that won't get hit by them quite often?!

    I did hear that Grenada dodges more often then getting hit, though.

    They are not. The "hurricane belt" or "hurricane alley" is generally considered to begin around St. Lucia.

    I was there from 2014-2016 and there were no storms. I heard there was a major storm at SGU back in 2004 however. I can't imagine what it would be like to be displaced during a term.

    sgu likes to say they're "below the hurricane belt", but that wasnt the case in 2004.

    The dakotas look like they are immune.

    To the OP, you can worry about future hurricaines, but both Ross and AUC were hit with major storms this year. Ross is still recovering, damage was severe. I'm not certain how things are going on St Martin.
