Tropical Storm Ophelia

Living in the Caribbean is pretty much what everyone cracks it up to be; beautiful, peaceful, and hot! Until rainy season that is. I have more appreciation for umbrellas and irrigation systems than I ever have in my life.

Last night tropical storm Ophelia hit Dominica. There wasn't a lot of fuss about this tropical storm like there have been in times past, but it has definitely given us a front row seat experiencing what Mother Nature can do.

Currently hundreds of students are without running water or electricity in their apartments (thank goodness our place has a generator!). About an hour away near Roseau, the capital of Dominica, flooding has overcome bridges and wrecked havoc in some communities.

Please keep those effected by storm Ophelia in your prayers. It is still raining (hasn't stopped since yesterday) and I just heard thunder!
