---oh dear, yes, it is!   Probably means there is no way of reporting what is going on, but thanks for sending what you have and I'll pass it around.  
Best of British Luck to you all!

Hiya S. very quiet at the moment of anything coming from the British Virgin Islands, which is a bit ominous. S x

As darkness fell across the (US)Virgin Islands Tuesday, it was accompanied by the howling winds and lashing rain of Hurricane Maria, which reached the territory as ” an extremely dangerous category five hurricane,” the National Hurricane Center reported at its 11 p.m. Tuesday update.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness yesterday pledged Jamaica's assistance to Caribbean nations impacted by major hurricanes in recent weeks as Hurricane Maria headed towards the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, with the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) warning of a “potentially catastrophic” impact after the storm battered Dominica and other territories in the Eastern Caribbean.

Dominica's leader sent out an emotional plea for help as Hurricane Maria smashed into the Caribbean island and caused "mind-boggling" devastation, but an ominous silence followed as the country lost all communications yesterday and the Category five hurricane barreled toward Puerto Rico, which looked likely to take a direct hit.

ST GEORGE’S, Grenada — Prime minister of Grenada and chairman of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Dr Keith Mitchell, led a CARICOM delegation on a visit to several Hurricane Irma-stricken islands last week. The team, which included the secretary general of CARICOM, Irwin LaRocque, and the executive of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), Ronald Jackson, left via the RSS plane from Grenada on Friday morning. Their first stop was the Turks and Caicos Islands, where they met with the premier and government officials, as well as toured affected areas.
