Keep the Caribbean in your thoughts and prayers
The Caribbean has been my home for the past 30 years. I love the people, the culture, the resources, the water and the magical things residing in it. I've been through many hurricanes since Hx Hugo in 1989. Tonight the northern Caribbean Islands are in the cross-hairs of a incredible Hurricane Irma. During the day tomorrow, homes will be blown away and reefs will be under assault by the tremendous forces of one of natures most powerful forces. Many of the animals We've all been preparing for several days, and many of us, for years for this event. But a storm of this magnitude, 180+mph sustained winds, gusts >200mph, what are the appropriate preparations?
This forum is for people who love the water, and some of you love warm, clear Caribbean waters. You love visiting here, swimming here. If you are one of those that appreciate this special place on our watery planet, please pause a moment tonight (9/5 and during the day tomorrow), send thoughts of peace, and prayers for safe passage for those in this storm's path. Thank you.
