GUYS, PLEASE, PRAY OR SEND GOOD VIBES OR ANY HELP THAT YOU CAN, NOT JUST TO PUERTO RICO, BUT ANY ISLANDS, STATES, OR COUNTRIES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN OR WILL GET HIT IN THE FOLLOWING DAYS BY HURRICANE IRMA.
IT’S LITERALLY A MONSTER HURRICANE, APPARENTLY SO STRONG THAT SEISMOMETERS ARE PICKING IT UP AS A SERIES OF QUAKES. MY ISLAND IS GETTING HIT BY IT TOMORROW AND IT JUST TURNED INTO A CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE, WHICH THE SHORES OF PUERTO RICO HAVE NOT SEEN SINCE 1928 (Hurricane San Felipe II). WE ARE IN A STATE OF IMMINENT EMERGENCY.
IRMA IS A CATEGORY 5 HURRICANE, REACHING UP TO 185 MPH+. YES, PLUS (AND, IN CASE YOU DON’T KNOW, THE THRESHOLD FOR A CAT. 5 IS SOMEWHERE AROUND 157 MPH.WE’RE VERY WELL PAST THAT.)SOME PEOPLE ARE EVEN SAYING IT COULD GO BEYOND CAT. 5.
AMERICA, PLEASE DON’T FORGET US. I KNOW WE’RE STILL HEALING FROM HARVEY’S DEVASTATION IN HOUSTON, BUT PLENTY OF THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS ARE ALSO PART OF THE UNITED STATES SOMEHOW, THE VIRGIN ISLANDS AND PR BEING AMERICAN TERRITORIES, AND PUERTO RICO BEING A POSSIBLE FUTURE 51ST STATE (IF THAT’S OF ANY IMPORTANCE TO YOU AT ALL). IT DOESN’T EVEN MATTER IF IT’S AN AMERICAN COUNTRY OR NOT, ANY AND ALL PLACES TO GET STRUCK DESERVE SUPPORT AND ALL THE HELP WE CAN GIVE. WE MUST REMAIN HOUSTON STRONG, AND NOW WE ALSO NEED TO BE CARIBBEAN STRONG. 🇵🇷🇺🇸
TO EVERYONE FROM THE ISLANDS TO THE STATES AND EVERY AFFECTED COUNTRY: PLEASE LOOK FOR SHELTER IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR HOUSE CANNOT WITHSTAND FLOODING, INTENSE WINDS (180 MPH+), HEAVY RAINS, LANDSLIDES, OR ANYTHING YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITIES SAY MAY BE A THREAT TO YOUR AREA. TRY TO ASSIST OTHERS IN WHATEVER THEY MAY NEED. PLEASE STAY SAFE EVERYONE. 💝 _______________________________________________________________________
A TODO EL MUNDO DE LAS ISLAS Y LOS ESTADOS Y LOS PAÍSES AFECTADOS: POR FAVOR BUSQUEN REFUGIO SI PIENSAN QUE SU HOGAR NO PUEDA AGUANTAR INUNDACIONES, RÁFAGAS DE MÁS DE 180 MPH, LLUVIAS FUERTES, DERRUMBES O CUALQUIER COSA QUE SUS AUTORIDADES LOCALES MARQUEN COMO UNA AMENAZA A SU ÁREA. TRATEN DE AYUDAR A LOS DEMAS CON LO QUE PUEDAN NECESITAR. TODOS MANTÉNGANSE A SALVO. 💝
guys, keep Puerto Rico, Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica, etc. in your thoughts and prayers, but PLEASE DEFINITELY PRAY FOR THE LESSER ANTILLES.
“Hurricane Irma has caused considerable damage on French island territories in the Caribbean, and casualties are expected, France’s president says.
The impact of Irma on St Martin and St Barts would be “hard and cruel”, Emmanuel Macron added.
His overseas affairs minister later confirmed at least two people dead and another two seriously injured.
The storm damaged more than 90% of buildings on Barbuda, Antigua and Barbuda’s prime minister said.
[…] Hurricane Irma first hit Antigua and Barbuda, before moving on to St Martin and Saint Barthélemy - the French holiday destination popularly known as St Barts. Significant damage is also being reported in the Dutch section of St Martin, known as Sint-Maarten. French Interior Minister Gérard Collomb said the hurricane had caused major floods, and destroyed buildings, including four of the “most solid” on the island.”
They already got hit by Irma and they’re relatively smaller than Puerto Rico, not to mention the infrastructures of many of these islands are weaker than ours. Barbuda is reportedly incommunicado and has about 90% material damage. Keep them in deeply in prayer, thoughts, and good vibes.
