Comments: From poster on stormcarib.com: This is a wild ride but gladly we are experiencing it during daylight which is always so much better. Winds are really strong in Ochi now, seas are rough! St. Mary is taking a beating with power outages, mudslides flooding. Oracabessa has been without power since 10 AM - cable just went off and we are amazed that it stayed on so long. Sandy must be just about making landfall as is is far more intense than earlier - folks in the area where we live have taken this seriously which is good, there are reports that others have not which is always sad. Hope all will be well. Leaves are stripping off the trees and going who knows where - can't venture out to see what is on the south side of the property but will do so when I am able Lots of rain right now with sustained winds, no break for quite some time Stay safe everyone Sue Morris
