People in South Florida get so panicked. We honestly forget just how much worse it is for these small islands. It’s no joke. I’m hundreds of miles away in Hollywood Beach and we can already feel slight winds and thunderstorms here. This thing is no joke.

I am watching this with a heavy heart ....185 mph and gusting to 220 mph brings back very familiar feeling to me ...this is exactly right down to the numbers what we in the British Virgin islands went through with hurricane Irma on 06th Sept 2017, but by the Grace of God we pulled through and you also will...keep your trust in HIM. We here in the British Virgin Islands are constantly praying for our brothers and sisters in The Bahamas and Florida...may the Almighty God Protect and keep you covered under his mighty wings.Amen
