    This one looks ominous. May I urge my fellow residents here to make sure you have enough food, water and other supplies just in case it turns ugly.

      Or you could just resort to looting like after Ivan.  If another heavy storm ever comes over Cayman I hope British troops are on the island in hours to protect subjects from looters.
