Hurricane Emily

It's only July 12, 2005 and already we have faced one full blown hurricane, Dennis. Luckily for us in Jamaica Dennis dallied around the island instead of hitting us directly. Still some parts of the island nearly 'wash weh'.
One person lost his life and many families are still in shelters as their homes are under water. From Portland to St. Anns got a lot of rain. Many roads in those parishes are still impassable and some bridges are out.
Once again the crops that were just beginning to come in after Hurricane Ivan last year were hard hit. 'Man, a lang fi a banana'.
And just when you think you can sigh a sigh of relief, 'braps', here comes another one. Hurricane Emily is making her way 'right back a' Dennis, following in his footsteps. ''Is a good thing me neva put up anything yet'. Them seh dat is only the man hurricane them have teeth, mi hope them right.
Still we are giving much thanks. Look at Haiti, Cuba and even parts of the great USA. Jamaica well blessed 'fi true.'
Well it's back on we knees, 'for wi did tink sey it did done, but it jus a com'.
Nuff love
