Dorian blew my stand over...the boxes slid open approximately 3”...they got rain but no tide...they were strapped to ground anchors or they would have been washed away...it was tricky to get them straight...when the strap was loosened, everything wanted to turn loose...they were extremely pissy needless to say...I have them on the ground about 4’ forward of where the stand is.... haven’t been in to check for the Queen s yet...

That looks like a mess, but it sounds like you hives made it atleast initially. I suspect atleast one hive will still have a queen (based on the hives still having bees) and hopefully all of your queens made it.

I have no experience with hurricanes, but I am wondering if feeding the hives syrup would be beneficial to build up any stores they may have lost and calm them down a bit.
