Cayman residents urged to monitor Irma

| 04/09/2017 | 28 Comments

Cayman News Service(CNS): Hurricane Irma is currently tracking west-southwest at 14 mph, as it builds into a dangerous category 4 storm. According to the US National Hurricane Center, it is expected to affect the northeastern Leeward Islands as a dangerous major hurricane, accompanied by life-threatening wind, storm surge and rainfall impacts, along with rough surf and rip currents. Hurricane warnings have been issued for portions of the Leeward Islands, where tropical-storm force winds are expected to first arrive by late Tuesday.

Hurricane watches have also been issued for the British and US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, where Irma could pass later this week. Tropical-storm-force winds could arrive in these areas by early Wednesday.

Predictions suggest that Irma could directly affect Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos, the Bahamas and Cuba as a dangerous major hurricane later this week, and the NHC said there is an increasing chance of Irma impacting the Florida Peninsula and the Florida Keys later this week and this weekend.

Given its latest projected path, the Cayman Islands National Weather Service is urging residents to monitor the system for further updates.

        It may seem that way for now but one thing every human on Earth have in common is DEATH, whether you be a king or a street sweeper one day we will all have to dance with the reaper, Satan controls nothing but only the greed and love of money, God has his furnace burning hot for all you pathetic mortals

        • Mr. Satan says:

          The bible clearly states offer god 10% of your own revenue.

          What reason could an omnipotent being possibly need money for?

          Maybe it gets a kick out of tricking gullible people like yourself and, if that isn’t greed and money controlling then what is?

            And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of
            your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith

            robbed thee? In tithes and offerings” (KJV)

            Foolish people who do not understand…Maybe, just maybe the 10 percent is for helping those in need. Just like the people who will need it in the path of a hurricane. I hope this does not affect you.

            Don’t worry mr.satan you will get your chance one day to ask GOD all the questions you want before he throws you into the furnace,hopefully for your sake that happens real soon because one thing’s for sure is that an empty shell tends to rotten from the outside in, and with all your money and materials in store still can’t change the fact that the misery burns within your empty shell,and to make matters worse (in your case) you can’t take none of it with
