Also, the bridges from the islands would close when the wind reached 35 miles per hour, sustainable.
Before we left, I put low-lying books, decorations, cloth and clothing on higher shelves and tables.
We packed up some of our clothing, medicines, and vital papers. We also took our cat with us.
We headed west and we had to drive many miles before we found a place to stay for a few days. Actually, friends in Atlanta searched the Internet and they found a fishing camp, reserved a room for us, and told us about it. We found it to be a wonderful place, peaceful and quiet.
As always, it seems that in emergencies, people come together and help each other. I know that when hurricane Matthew came through, we had a lot of people help us and show their concern for us. We are thankful for our friends and neighbors.
