    Reports getting through to the UK are St Maarten and other small islands are being looted by armed people/gangs.
    A gang of 600 local delinquents is reported to be heading it for personal profit.
    40 high risk prisoners escaped when the prison was ripped open.
    One solider said he alone is stopping a looter every 10 minutes.
    There are fights over what little food and water is left. There is no electricity and no communication.
    Travellers stuck there are struggling to survive, they complain that the travel companies have abandoned them. They have been told to find fallen coconuts for sustenance.
    Those that have been evacuated are apparently crying with relief.
    There are reports that a high price has to be paid to leave, this must be aside from evacuation by the military.
    10 died in Cuba bringing the total for the region to 35.

    Viewed from space, all the islands were once green but are now brown.
    That is spots of information from the news and this article, there is worse.
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4875370/Islanders-fight-scraps-food-St-Martin.html

    Images of Florida show massive floods and houses with roofs ripped off.
    25% of houses in Florida Keys were destroyed.
    5 deaths reported so far.
    Lack of power means millions will struggle in the heatwave.
    Again, worse things are happening

    Anyone know how much money has been donated to relief efforts by Jay-z and beyonkse ?

    They must be just as devastated as everyone else, as they got property in Miami...

    My heart goes out to you Mate!!

    Not a more helpless feeling than to be isolated with no power. One does not realise how much we depend on electricity until it is deprived. My wife and I went 8 days without power (Francis date edit: 2004, sry old man memory malfunction) and that was a deal breaker with my wife. She is currently in Memphis. It can and will beat you down, mentally and physically. Check into a hotel room or come stay with me , Mate.

    We have power now and it was like Christmas for me when it came on.

    Just when we have started making a little progress towards recovery after Hurricane Cat 5 Irma devastated the whole Caribbean islands now we have incoming 2 more hurricanes ( Maria Cat 1 right now but it will reach Cat 3 or 4 by the time it gets to the Caribbean and Lee in the early development to become a major hurricane ) in bound and they will hit all the Caribbean islands including where i live in the island of Puerto Rico sadly again :(. and one more still around Jose ( Hurricane Jose still in the Atlantic ocean very close to us and the USA ). That's 3 Hurricanes at the same time roaring in the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

    We are in a state of National emergency again and there is chaos in the supermarkets , hardware stores and all thru the island. Our USA National Guard has been activated again and sirens have sound all over the island announcing the devastated news to get ready and prepare yet for another one or two big hits form Hurricanes Maria and Lee.

    Our President Donald Trump is flying to the island today or tomorrow to help and talk to our governor so that we can get ready for this unprecedented act of nature as never , ever in the history of the Caribbean islands , never been hit by 3 Hurricanes in a row one after the other , this is not normal at all :/ , I have never seen this before , let's pray to our dear lord that we make it this time. I will keep you guys updated whenever i can.

    Regards: Chispy.

    Just wow.
    Its finally on the TV weather report and at the moment its a Cat1 Hurricane as it hits the Caribbean islands today.
    Then it will strengthen to a Cat 3 or 4 before it hits Puerto Rico!!
    ffs, you guys are having it rough.
    And thats just the first one!

    They have projected 6 storms/hurricanes to arrive in the UK before Christmas.
    I've not seen the like of this before, we have just had a strong storm that wrecked my garden and closed roads round here.
    Not in the same league but worth looking at statistically.
    What a year, hopefully its a rogue for us all.

    It's a strong storm season coming off a El Ninio weather pattern which made for a mild winter. Actually it's similar to 2004 IIRC but most of the storms then (with the exception of Katrina) never made landfall.
