Comments: It is nearly 6:00pm in Ochi and the rains and winds have not subsided. Almost dark outside now We did not get a break from the eye of the storm, it exited the island to our east so we have been battered all day. Have not been able to go outside to see what is happening as the winds and rain are too strong. The seas are high and rough and visibility is zero. Many reports coming in from St. Mary and I am sure once daylight comes tomorrow the damage will be evident in St. Mary and St. Ann The rain is so hard it is driving in under the doors so it is a race with the mop and bucket to try to contain it. There have been tree limbs hitting the roof, not sure what trees they are from as there are none close to the house. Cell service has been down so it is difficult to check on others at the moment.
