It’s been four days since Hurricane Irma paid us a visit here in the Dominican Republic. This mighty storm was a record-breaker, and at this moment continues to cause damage in the United States.
Here in Cabarete, things were looking pretty hopeless in the days leading up to Irma’s landfall. This Category 5 monster had been wreaking havoc across the Caribbean, and we were next.
It’s hard to describe the anxiety and fear that standing in the path of this storm brings. Even with reassurances from the locals that the geography here protects the North Coast from major storms, I was scared.
