Here we go again . . .

Dominica under immediate threat, and Florida to be seen. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst, friends.

It's a five now, just off of Dominica. Take care, Steve.

Many thanks, Jim. I'm off island at present, in fact I'm about to leave for an emergency meeting of the Dominica diaspora in the Washington, D.C. area.

Reports are sporadic. Devastation appears to be total. The third largest population center may have been wiped off the map. Those whose houses still have roofs are very lucky. No word yet from family. No idea whether the university office still exists or whether my assistant there is okay.

Anyway, thanks again. Will let you all know when I know more.
