Irma put the wind up
I was in Miami when Hurricane Irma hit and it was truly terrifying. Every half hour we were getting text alerts telling us to evacuate. But we couldn’t get out because the roads were full of cars, bumper to bumper all the way to Orlando.
If you went to the supermarket you couldn’t get water and everything was sold out. You had to be there to understand the panic – you couldn’t get away from it. If the power went you had nowhere to charge your phone and you felt completely disconnected from the world.
Luckily my house didn’t suffer any damage and Aer Lingus managed to get me on a flight out of there. But I am truly devastated for all the people in Florida and the Caribbean who have lost everything.
It is a disaster of the worst kind.
SCARY Miami flood
