Hurricane Dean in the Caribbean!
I’m just about to leave home for Canada and here comes a hurricane! Of course, Hurricane Dean is no where close to The Bahamas, but it has affected the lower Caribbean islands, especially Dominica, St. Lucia and Martinique claiming a few lives. Now that it is hitting Jamaica almost dead-on, I do pray that it will not claim any more lives! I hope that, as it progresses further towards the Cayman Islands, the Yucatan and Mexico, conditions will only improve.
My big concern is for those communities in the lower economic ladder within these and other countries that will sustain damage. Whatever happens, let’s hope they are able to pick up the pieces and rebuild their lives. As one who has experienced my share of some of the worse hurricanes here in The Bahamas, I can tell you it is one of the frightening things you will ever have to live through! It doesn’t help when you are a few yards from the open sea and can watch from your window as the powerful waves bash against the sea-wall!
If you are in any of these parts where Hurricane Dean is predicted to hit or has already affected, know that persons out there have you in their prayers.
