Aruba, bad luck?

So I'm packing for Aruba for next week and they get hit with bad waves that wash away a bunch of beaches. Today I read that the casinos at the Westin, Occidental Grand and Radsisson are closing. I'm worried. What next?

The beaches (sand) returns. The Rad will repopen their casino after remodel - they kicked the people who were running it out for various reasons and it went to court. These same people run the Westin, I believe. Gambling is alive and well in Aruba and the beaches weren't totally wiped out. Don't worry!

I'm hard pressed to think of Aruba not being able to deliver on amazing beaches, gaming and great restaurants. The weather can have an impact on the beaches, but there's enough island to enjoy.
