Comments: Posted on Stormcarib Message 1 from a hotel somewhere near Penns Landing ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Power lines are down at Frenchmen Cay, someone says they were on fire.. Virgin Gorda has no power Power was on until about 135pm at a certain hotel in East end, the caller didn't say which hotel, we believe it's near the Riteway in East End, but we aren't sure which Riteway... Several boats have sunk at Sopers Hole Winds are coming from due west Ocean is white and frothy looking southward ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Message 2 from Penns Landing Marina (different person) Winds are measured at 75 knots from the West, but while talking, they shot up to 90 knots One little sailboat to the east of the marina has capsized, electric power is shut down. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
