Jamaica’s prayers have been answered and we have been spared from Hurricane Matthew. We were as prepared as we could have been and whether a lot of money was spent or not, Hurricane warnings should always be taken seriously and it is better to be safe than sorry. An hour of rain on Sunday caused flooding in many areas so there is a lot to be thankful for. 

The eye of Hurricane Matthew is now over Haiti and some persons in Haiti are ok right now with power and just experiencing some wind, however Southern Haiti is getting a beating. The sea has gone into some of the cities. Pray for Haiti to survive this and to recover as soon as possible. I am sure various relief efforts will be put out once Hurricane Matthew has passed.

Back to work Ja!

Hurricane Prep Tips

Hurricane Matthew may not be a direct hit to Jamaica but it is traveling extremely slow, which is not good for us as we clearly cannot handle a lot of rain for a lengthy period of time. 

For my Suga Bears not only in Jamaica but Haiti, Cuba, Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas, this diagram says a lot. Take a look if you haven’t prepared already and even if you have, check it in case you missed something. 

Keep safe!
