Hurricane Matthew

This is the scene everywhere you look on Skidaway Island after hell poured down from Hurricane Matthew.  Trees uprooted or snapped and toppled on homes and over streets.

With nearly a thousand people reported dead in Haiti, from this hurricane, the fact that not one life was lost on this Island is a miracle.  A mandatory evacuation may have saved lives, and certainly  everyone made preparations in earnest and took every precaution possible.img_8255My heart goes out to the families who came back to find their homes damaged, and without power for days.  People are coming together and slowly this Island will repair and revive.  It will take time.  At the end of the day, Mother Nature wins every battle she forges, but she also gives back in equal measure.

    I’m always saddened to hear of the devastation after one of these storms. I am assuming by your post that your home was spared any damage? The loss of life on Haiti was so sad, now to be followed by an outbreak of cholera. I am sending prayers their way.

  2. I am saddened when I see the devastation that was left after Matthew. Flooding for days after, homes and of course lives lost. I read that only 1% of the homes are left in Haiti, so many are without shelter. Hope that none of these photos are your house or yard.

  3. What a blessing it is that no one was injured or killed by Hurricane Matthew. Your wonderful community will unite and new friends will be made in earnest. We are so happy your home was
    spared!
    All the best and yes…Prayers to the poor people of Haiti.
