There were some landslides on the hills, minor flooding, but no major damages were reported. This morning we were back at work as all buisness places were opened.

Dorian is now heading towards Florida with a wind speed of 60mph and storm force wind extending 60 miles outward from the center according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

The NHC also stated that the storm will upgrade to a category 2 hurricane before it reaches Florida.

As expected, the residents of Florida are vigorously preparing for the impact of this storm.

Please pray for the residents of Florida that God will shield them from this storm.

Thank you for your prayers for us in the caribbean. God has been good to us.

Let us continue to keep each other in prayer as we ride out the storms of life.

  1. Bev, so happy to hear that BVI was spared major damage and that everyone is allowed to return to work. My husband is part of TSA’s EDS team and has been deployed for the last three years so I understand firsthand how difficult it is to be displaced and then return home to clean up and rebuild.

    May the Lord be with the Florida and Georgia coast residents this weekend and may they be spared great harm from Dorian.

    • Thank you, Candice for your prayers and encouragement. We will continue to pray for Florida and Georgia as Dorian is now a major hurricane and is very unpredictable. Have a blessed weekend.
