Hannah 22 August It seems we dodged the bullet with Dean.

Dean passed 115 miles south of us, we only experienced strong Tropical storm
force winds, about 60-70 mph with gusts to 80 mph.  The all clear was issued
at 4pm on Monday, and I was able to return home.

On the whole the Island fared well, there were a few trees and fences down,
but nothing major.  The South coast had a bit of flooding where the sea had
washed over the road.

Everyone is extremely thankful.  Having such a close encounter with a huge
storm brought back memories of the nighmare we went through with Hurricane
Ivan 3 years ago.

Lets hope for a quiet end to the season.
