Default Re: Hurricane Felicia

Many of us in Europe have friends on that rock and it's times like this that we worry about you and your pets. Scouts motto 'Be Prepared'. I was there once during a long and bad storm. All the pesticides were washed from the golf course and into the Ala Waia canal. On top of this a sewer burst and this was pumped in also. I walked across the bridge by the canoe club on McCulley and saw lots of fish, dead and belly up. No point in putting my brolley up in those winds. From where the canal came out at Magic Island to Diamond Head was closed to bathing. Not that anybody would want to bathe in weather like that, yet I did feel sorry for the tourists who had spent a lot of money on their holiday.

Please be safe.
