    I would like to see a complete report from the disaster preparedness team of on our level of readiness for this hurricane season.
    We know that Maria brought Dominica to its knees. We also know that with our blazing lantern to be the first disaster resilient nation in the world….that Dominica have become the happy recipient of millions in international disaster aid.
    With 75% of Dominicans still residing under tapaulins….I would think that by now… Dominica would at least have erected a resilient hurricane shelter in each district…fully equipped with underground shelter….food, water and medical supplies.

    However, Dominicans are again left to the mercy of already compromised churches and schools…
    And though Mr. Skerrit and a couple ministers have offered their homes as shelters….. what are the real plans for this hurricane season?. Or are we playing it by ear again?.

      Yea End is Near
      They really have to get serious and stop all hurricanes from coming our way in Dominica or going anywhere else for that matter. In other words stop nature from doing what it does best. They have to get serious and pay insurance premiums for all Dominicans so that their houses can be fixed immediately after a storm, even if they have to import aliens from Mars with the skills to fix all the roofs in Dominica “one time”.

      They have to get serious and channel the water from the rain somewhere else other than in rivers that get flooded and cause damage. In fact they have to get serious and flatten all the hills and mountains that we have so that there is no run off to cause problems on the slopes and flat areas.

      They have to fix the electricity infrastructure so that no poles fall down, in fact run all of the lines underground immediately so that all of Dominica can have lights, even those houses that had never been wired.

      Get serious guys.

    Who don’t hear will feel they say…. The more they leave corruption in power the more Jah will punish wicked people. It’s just sad that the innocent have to suffer too. Hope people open their eyes or else is more to come.

    We as a nation went right back to our wicked ways after Maria. We didn’t learn anything from the lessons taught by teacher Maria. Politicking, gossiping, and taking part in all kinds of wicked and evil deeds. When we learn to live like brothers and sisters and come together under one roof only then will we be spared from natures wrath.

    Of course, prepare yourselves. Buy food, water, and secure your family and property. This is important. Does anyone know what will possibly happen? Whether Beryl will change its mind and go up the scale, or be a disastrous water storm, or just keep people in hopeless fear?
    Be honest and answer this question. If you were the ONLY PERSON left on this planet with everything in tact, what would you do? would you really enjoy it?
    Think about it because i am sure that your answer would be NO! This is because we are the salt of the earth! We give flavor to the earth and once we are gone it becomes tasteless. So too if we miss our destiny we will become tasteless.
    “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and loose his soul?” Satan himself would chose you over any other thing on this planet because of your soul. It is valuable! you are valuable!
    You have been sent to have life to the fullest by God’s authority in the name of Jesus but satan’s goal is to block that hapiness

      continuation:
      Now that today you have listened to His voice harden not your heart! Now is the appointed time! We can begin by humbling ourselves before God in repentance. Ask the lord Jesus Christ to forgive you from your sin and prepare your heart to know Him so that He may eventually use you to do good and know what He has planned for your life.
      Let us pray for one another, the sick, the hungry, the needy, the poor, the weak… let us help those who do not have a safe place, provide from our table for others but most of all, believe by faith in the lord Jesus Christ!
      Many think of tomorrow but we must remember that we only know today! Tomorrow is not in our hands.
      Are we going to gamble our eternity? or try Jesus?
      Chose ye this day whom you shall serve but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!
      Praise the name of Jesus!
