    Shortly after that, the other edge of the hurricane did more damage. Tons of flooding. No power, no TV... I now know I would not survive on Survivor.

    We got lucky, we had drinking water, no running water, 50% electricity, only bread for food, and that's it. The other resorts got totalled, military helicopters came in to rescue people. Swimming in sewage throughout their resorts, no food or water for 3 days. Last I heard about 10 or so people died. And this was only a Cat 1/2 hurricane. Feel sorry for the folks hit by Ivan (Cat 3/4).

    More pics to come after I recover.

    Uprooted tree:


    After the eye passed us, the winds picked up again, but in the other direction:




    The night before, the moths were looking for a place to hide from the hurricane and stayed in our balcony. There were literally a million moths flying around, pretty nasty. As you can see, they didn't survive:


    One of the military helicopters that was used to evacuate some of the resorts.


    Even the president of the dom. republic showed up at the airport. He stopped by to survey the damage, as our area was the worst hit in the entire country.

    thats insane man!

    holy hell.

    When I heard a week ago you were heading down there, and then later on that day I heard of another hurricane brewing in the dominican I was like "Awww damn, I hope rage doesn't get owned."

    Looks like you got to experience a good lot of it.

    First off, glad to hear you're okay.

    Secondly, those pictures are fantastic. Takes a lot of balls to be able to go out and take them. Can't wait for the video!

    Updated the first post with a video. That one big piece of leaf on that tree on the left that's about to fall off, I actually got smacked with that upside the head when I went out to film from downstairs a few minutes later lol.

    I wish I could host the High definition version of it... it's 125MB .

    Looks like Jeanne is gonna be the 4th Hurricane to lay the smack down on Florida. Can't believe they got owned 4 times in the last while by weather.
