Very limited news out of St. Martin but one is the 4 strongest government buildings were destroyed. I hope those buildings were not being used for shelters.
Hopefully the topography of Tortola and surrounding Islands protect the BVI well.

Prayers for the safety of those that stayed on Anegada!

I'm thinking of all of you there on island, and those of you with property there. I'm praying the BVI won't be utterly destroyed. Geez, Irma is huge.

Peak winds expected on Virgin Gorda around noon. Storm is moving very fast which is great as it will do the least damage.

The eye wall is 17 miles from Virgin Gorda, looks like it will pass over the top in just over a hour.

If there are any cavalier holdouts left in the BVI, I'd recommend hunkering down, NOW.

Just when you think it couldn't get any worse, the forecast track is now straight over Road Town.

I'm concerned that the same Tortola topography will be subject to heavy mudslides and tremendous property damage...

Thinking of everyone at this time...

Posts from Storm Carib say that St John lost power around 10a local, Estimated gusts at 125mph. St Thomas is reporting Frenchtown as 'a mess' and noise of cracking trees and sheet metal flying. No updates from BVIs or SXM within the last hour.

I hope Kelly and the rest on Anegada pull through okay....
