Effect of hurricane Irma

As you all know, the British Virgin Islands have been hit by a catastrophic Hurricane Irma and is expected to get hit tomorrow by Hurricane Jose. My longest and dearest friend Corri recently moved there in June to be with her boyfriend Matt. We knew that the destruction was severe, but we were not able to come face to face with its reality until this morning when we finally heard from her after days of no cell service or wifi connection. All but one room in their house was destroyed and they took refuge in the bathtub for 9 hours with a mattress over them, listening to every tree that fell down and every roof being torn apart by the winds, thinking that they are going to be next. They have lost their home, their livelihood, and all their belongings, and the devastation isn't even done yet. First off, I am asking you for prayer because above everything else, we need them home safe and sound when all this is over. Prayer for strength cause I could only imagine what they are going through right now just to survive. And lastly, any little bit that you can donate will help me help my best friend rebuild their lives once they are back home safe with all the love of their family and friends.
