The locals thought this lighthouse was destroyed in the hurricane in 2008. I went there looking for destroyed remains and found this lighthouse. It looked like a fairly new tower and if you look at the base you can see where it looks like another tower had been secured in the 4 corners. I was unable to find out much about this replacement lighthouse.

I found some info about J4946, but probably it is related to the previous lighthouse:
Height 18m, elevation 23m
White flash every 10s, (fl 1s, eclipse 9s)
Range 10nm
This tower looks much lower than 18 meters, but i think light mode could stayed unchanged.
