Update on Hurricane Joaquin

Hurricane Joaquin is now moving north and out of the Bahamas. In it wake, it looks like Crooked, Acklins and Long Island took the brunt of the storm. With 135 mph winds and an 8-10 foot storm surge there was considerable flooding and damage to homes and buildings on these islands. Most means of communication with Crooked and Acklins are down and the airport on Acklins is closed so our old friend Fedel Johnson of Lovely Bay is taking the mailboat to Acklins on Monday. We hopefully will know more soon. I'll try and get more info as soon as possible. We wish to extend our prayers and best wishes to the people on these islands.
