Most people don’t realize this, but even concrete and brick homes don’t stand a chance against a cat 4 or 5. When I was in the second grade I rode out a cat 4 with my family at my grandmas concrete house. There were tornadoes everywhere I saw other concrete and brick homes all around us get ripped apart like paper. The pressure inside my grandmas house was so intense we thought the roof would just fly off, but we were lucky. That storm only lasted three hours, I can’t even imagine going through 24 hours of that. My heart goes out to everyone in the Bahamas.

I’m looking at all those yachts you need to recycle all those boats have generators, the sail boats have sails that can be used for recycling right now is the way to go to survive.

God bless you all.

(7:25) "People have to look after their mental health." I'm so glad he said that. I've been watching all the footage and thinking, this is an entire population that has not only lost everything, but their minds are scarred. They didn't live through a brief traumatic situation (which is bad enough), they survived days of trauma and they will continue to be traumatized by what they see, hear, smell, feel and remember for weeks and months to come. These are hidden wounds truly need "looking after." Long after the cleanup and rebuilding is over, the trauma will still need tending. Let's keep their mental health in mind along with their physical and monetary needs.

We're praying for you all!
