Just read an article about Richard Branson who is going to stay on Necker Island during the hurricane. He's got a concrete subterranean wine cellar to bunk down in. I hope everybody else, who isn't so well fortified, gets through it safely. Seems this hurricane could really cause severe damage.

Well, it was a direct hit, so I doubt we'll see much news until tomorrow.

I was on Virgin Island News Platinum site earlier and they had several pics of Tortola that looked really bad. It mentioned there had been no reports from Anegada, Virgin Gorda, or any of the other islands. That site is down now.

I heard BEYC was basically gone. Seeing the pictures of Tortola, I can't imagine the devastation on VG.

Sam Branson posted on Instagram that everyone on Necker was safe but that there were many buildings demolished. So so sad. VG is our favorite place in the world... already thinking of ways to help.
