BRENDAN LOY: No, really, get out of Jamaica: “When Hurricane Gilbert slammed Jamaica in 1988, it killed 45 people and caused $4 billion of damage. It destroyed houses, roads and small aircraft. It ‘severely damaged all but two medical facilities and 50% of the water supply.’ So even if you survive the hurricane, the aftermath will be ugly, if it hits as badly as it could. Seriously — there’s no reason to risk it. Get the hell out.”

UPDATE: A Cayman Islands hurricane alert.
