I thank God my family and I made it through the worst of Hurricane Matthew. It went from cat 3 to cat 4 while it was moving through New Providence island. We had sustained winds of 138 mph gusting to 167 mph! Matthew's speed has increased to 14 mph and it is heading towards the Berry Islands and Grand Bahama. We still have Tropical Storm force winds with heavy gusts and heavy rain. Our power isn't back on yet. I'm typing this with some difficulty on my phone. We are running around catching leaks! Eleven leaks so far and we are running out of receptacles! Sadly there are reports of many residents on N.P., some of whom didn't heed the warnings to evacuate, whose homes have been flooded. They are now waiting to be rescued. They are in low lying areas. My family and I are very fortunate.
