As many of our readers know, one of our most valued and prolific contributors lives on Montserrat. Irma passed over that island early Wednesday morning. We have not heard from our contributor since Tuesday evening, and we may not hear from him again for several days if, as expected, power has gone out. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the residents of the Caribbean islands and the coastal regions who have been or soon will be hit by the storm.
UPDATE: We have heard from KF and he is OK. The main force of the storm passed slightly to the north of Montserrat. Let us continue to remember the residents of the small island of Barbuda, which was devastated by the storm.
