If You Are Anywhere Near The Path Of Hurricane Irma, Get Out Now

Someone I know has relatives on the Virgin Islands that they have been worried sick about.
For good reason.
They finally got a call out on a satellite phone yesterday evening and they are alive but that is about the only good thing they had to report.

Their house has been flattened.
Their truck has completely disappeared.
Every shred of vegetation around their property is either on the ground or out at sea somewhere.
The cell phone towers have been destroyed, the power is long gone and they have no water.

No water as in they get their water delivered by tanker every week.

They have no idea if their rather large sail boat has survived as they have no way to get to the marina to check on it.

In other words, they are fucked.

I am serious, if you think this thing is coming your way get the fuck out of Dodge pronto, it is going to tear a new asshole into anything it comes into contact with.
