This is the scene everywhere you look on Skidaway Island after hell poured down from Hurricane Matthew. Trees uprooted or snapped and toppled on homes and over streets.
With nearly a thousand people reported dead in Haiti, from this hurricane, the fact that not one life was lost on this Island is a miracle. A mandatory evacuation may have saved lives, and certainly everyone made preparations in earnest and took every precaution possible.My heart goes out to the families who came back to find their homes damaged, and without power for days. People are coming together and slowly this Island will repair and revive. It will take time. At the end of the day, Mother Nature wins every battle she forges, but she also gives back in equal measure.
