      There are plenty of places on earth that hurricanes never strike because they are far inland and far from the tropics. There are plenty of places on earth that hurricanes often strike, again just because of where they exist, not because of whether the people there deserve protection or not. Or is Haiti full of people who deserve to be hit by hurricane after hurricane, earthquake after earthquake? If all the people of Haiti and Dominica traded islands, Haiti would continue to be harder and more frequently than Dominica.

    Praying this doesn’t further strengthen and passes the islands especially Dominica straight.
