    Hurricane Maria

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,

    I graduated from Ross and was wondering what are they doing on the island in regards to Maria? Did they evacuate all the students there?

    The weather channel said it will be a devastating hit.

    Stay safe everyone.

    CNN Story about the Cat 5 Hurricane that hit Dominica:

    Hurricane Maria-21616433_10155466167355225_3615423607282194303_n.jpg

    "Initial reports are of widespread devastation," Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said on Facebook.

    "So far we have lost all what money can buy and replace. My greatest fear for the morning is ... news of serious physical injury and possible deaths as a result of likely landslides triggered by persistent rains."

    A few hours earlier, the Prime Minister posted, "My roof is gone. I am at the complete mercy of the hurricane. House is flooding."

    Maria is now the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall in Dominica, a former French and British colony with an economy heavily dependent on tourism and agriculture.

    LIAT has suspended all flights into Dominica as we await information from the authorities there. In addition, our relief flights to and from Tortola, BVI and St Maarten are also suspended and a further advisory will update you on the resumption of those flights.

    NOTE LIAT IS THE NAME OF THE MAIN AIR CARRIER INTO AND OUT OF DOMINICA AND NOT THE NAME OF A PERSON OR HURRICANE

    With telecommunications destroyed on the hurricane-ravaged island of Dominica, one of the only means of getting word out to the world is from amateur Ham radio operators.
    And families desperate for news on their loved ones, the information being shared is bad – people are feared dead.
    On a scale of one to ten, the damage was put at nine. Almost all the homes are damaged, with many completely destroyed, the Ham operators reported.
    “Everything is down. Roads are block. The power lines have fallen. Some concrete homes are standing but the windows are blown out. 100 per cent of house have suffered damage” one Ham operator reported.
    Particularly hard hit by the Category 5 hurricane Maria overnight is the northern part of the island where the university is located and where many international students reside.
    A full assessment of the scope of the damage done to the island overnight is being undertaken by emergency management authorities.
    Images of the damage were not available up to Tuesday evening.
    Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, who had to be rescued from his collapsing residence during the worst of the storm, has called for international aid.
    “So far we have lost all what money can buy and replace. My greatest fear for the morning is that we will wake to news of serious physical injury and possible deaths as a result of likely landslides triggered by persistent rains.
    “So, far the winds have swept away the roofs of almost every person I have spoken to or otherwise made contact with. The roof to my own official residence was among the first to go and this apparently triggered an avalanche of torn away roofs in the city and the countryside” he said.
