Hortense Lester-Cole­man

“Well, I am very pre­pared, I have stocked up on bat­ter­ies, flash­light and can­dle. I also stored away wa­ter as a part of my prepa­ra­tion. For me, as a Chris­tian, I be­lieve God will turn His hand in the Name of Je­sus. I be­lieve we will get a lot of rain, but that’s it.”

Jac­que­line Spence

“Yes, I take this storm as a threat, and I be­lieve we will get this storm be­cause Ja­maica needs a shake-up, and I think God is go­ing to give us the shake-up. I am al­ways pre­pared. I have stocked away my food, and the rea­son why I am here is be­cause I came to buy lamp for my sis­ter.”

Damion ‘Soupy’ Camp­bell

“Well, in life nat­u­ral dis­as­ters nor­mally oc­cur, and this is the sea­son for it. I am pre­pared, be­cause the food is nec­es­sary, and other items, but I am pre­pared.”

Alvin Ob­bins

“No. I don’t take it as a threat and since I have been here peo­ple say storm is com­ing, and I have never seen it as a great threat. I just see at as away to sell off their goods and stuff like that. Well, I am still pre­pared, be­cause I don’t have any kids around, just me and my wife.”
