Prayers for Jamaica, Caymans
Hi, peoples. Hope everyone had a good weekend. I'm anxiously awaiting word from friends in Jamaica on how they how fared with Hurricane Dean. I got a call through on Saturday night and they were battened down and waiting to see how things would unfold. So far there are reports of at least one death.
And now Dean is headed for the Cayman Islands, which are severely vulnerable to storm surge. I emailed a friend there and she said that thankfully they're only experiencing tropical storm force winds, nothing so far over 60 mph. By mid afternoon today Dean should have passed them. Thank God for that.
Get the latest photos on Dean's destruction here.
