  11. and do not get me wrong, this is as bad as bad gets. cannot cry enough to express my genuine grief and compassion. i live with volcano but i fear hurricanes and the unrelenting wrath of the ocean it brings.

  12. this is the story of…why is your house not mounted on concrete pillars hiabove predicted storm surge levels in hurricane waters?

  14. I got a few questions, 1. Were they paid to stay their to make it seem like they were victims too? Where are all the white people that live in the Bahamas? Where did they go because I didnt see any on them ships or busses? So now he said they were safe well why weren't the black people of the land safe? Someone answer those questions!!
