Comments: Poster is from Stormcarib.com: One of the good things for me is that I am off island, but the husband is on island! I just tried to reach him via cell, no answer, at work and no answer, then at home...yeah he answered!! Thank goodness he had the regular fone plugged into the jack. So, on the east end in Grapetree, no electricity since about 4am, raining hard right now coming down in sheets he said. Wind gusts on the meter on the balcony are reading gusts at 60mph, steady at 29mph. He said that he can see a power line across the road down on S Grapetree Road in the neighborhood, so not sure if the pole snapped or a tree fell on it. Cell service is out and also Internet too on east end. I gave him the report that the storms closest point will be 107 miles away at 5pm, so this is definitely going to make for a long afternoon. I will call him in a bit to get another report and I will post. I am so nervous for everyone knowing how dangerous these storms can be. Omar in 2008 was terrible on the east end :
