Tropical Storm Erika in Dominica

For Thursday we have built a lot of plans, but woke up in a trap. No water, no electricity and the Internet. Thank God, an old Nokia phone had a radio and we can catch the radio to hear the news: tropical storm Erika in Dominica. From our top of the mountain it was not looks scary: heavy rain, thunder, a bit dark and no wind. Nothing special. But it appears somewhere on the island people were dying. Landslides. Rivers overflow their banks, washing away everything in its path. Collapsing bridges, houses to dust, stone fences washed away. Over 35 people dead.

Next day helicopters were flying to get people from isolated areas.
