Travis Scott

Hurricane Maria was upgraded to a category 5 monster storm as it barrels toward Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The tiny island of Dominica — where rapper Travis Scott was born, was devastated by Maria’s high winds and rain on Monday.

Maria tore through Dominica with sustained winds of 160 mph and heavy rain. The storm is now making a beeline toward the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Dominica’s prime minister was rescued after high winds tore the roof off his house on Monday.

“So far we have lost all what money can buy and replace,” Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit wrote in a Facebook post early Tuesday. He described widespread devastation on the island of 74,000 people.

“So far the winds have swept away the roofs of almost every person I have spoken to or otherwise made contact with,” Mr. Skerrit wrote.

Now Puerto Rico is preparing for the worst after surviving Hurricane Irma 2 weeks ago.

“This is a moment of extreme danger for Puerto Rico,” said Gov. Ricardo Rosselló in a press conference early Tuesday. “If we don’t take precautions, there will be a significant loss of life.”

He added: “Zinc houses, wooden houses won’t survive winds of 160 miles an hour. Get out, get out of there.”

    Building codes changed dramatically after Andrews destroyed part of Miami-Dade county. I hope that after this hurricane season all these caribbean countries update their building standards including for people who build second or vacation homes. Most everyone in Barbuda was evacuated and the island was flattened by Irma. The island is considered lost. At least in Haiti they are raising better buildings after the earthquake.

    My coworker has family here and he said that the island lost communication about 1am. He’s worried to death, I pray his family is okay.

    “Zinc houses, wooden houses won’t survive winds of 160 miles an hour. Get out, get out of there.”

    This is the reality of most islands. I hope and pray that there are no loss of lives.

  • Yardgirl

    Let the cruise line cancel/reschedule so that you can it refunded or a new date. If you cancel then you may incur penalties. Good luck!

  • Yardgirl

    Oh no! This season started out brutal. Hope you are doing OK and that it does not come your way again.

    Sandra, I used to love this blog. A couple years back, you always had the tea. You had tea before TMZ and other blogs even knew about.
    I would always spread the word about this blog and how accurate it was.

    I don’t know if in your older age you aren’t keeping up with the times or simply just not doing your research,

    Travis Scott was NOT born in Dominica. 21 SAVAGE WAS BORN IN DOMINICA. I swear every other blog post of yours is INACCURATE.

    How is this blog even up and running any more? I see multiple people fact checking you.

    You talk about fake media..ok then what kind of blog is this?? All the stuff you post is NOT FACTUALLY CORRECT.

    Holy crap it took me two seconds to check that it WAS 21 savage and NOT Travis scott born in Dominica.

    Stop blogging please. It’s so disappointing!!!

    Miami here??

  • IamAllnatural

    All of these monster hurricanes, earthquakes, & trump, is the world ending or what?

  • IamAllnatural

    Maybe it’s menopause, that’s my Mom’s favorite excuse.

  • Roderick2011


    I hope you didn’t have much damage.

    When did you get your electricity back?

  • IamAllnatural

    No damage, just trees down in neighborhood. I don’t have large trees because of fear that it will fall on my house like it did on my moms house during Andrew. Thank God my power was only off for a day & cable was off for 3 days.

    I’m intbe Caribbean and our houses aren’t made from crap, at least not the ones in my country. Don’t say all. Funny thing is people in my coutry always talk about the building codes of other coutries saying it’s not as strict as ours. I guess that’s just life.

  • Pamela

    Travis cute.

  • Shanese

    What a shame. He looks like the devil in the form of a human being

  • Roderick2011

    Great I am glad to hear that.

    Comments generate revenue. It’s easy to trigger somebody to comment if you post something that you know isn’t true or write from a shady narrative. Like her post about Beyonce will trigger Beyonce fans to comment. It does’t matter how she really feels. This is a business. She just needs you to click and comment to get paid. I’ve noticed the same thing over the years but I also know how the game works. Not that I agree with her methods, I understand what secures the coin.

    There is this thing called the Caribbean Uniform Building Code(CUBiC) which addresses construction standards. Because ALL islands are vulnerable to hurricanes, I merely suggest that they upgrade their codes just like Miami had to. Because these islands have less resources, it’s not easy for them and thus the CUBIC came to being. The island of Barbuda is a total loss. If your house stood, there is no infrastructure, food, water, etc. to sustain people so many residents plan to resettle elsewhere. Billionaire Richard Branson’s house was destroyed. It looked like it was built with sticks and straw and some stones. I’ve lived in Puerto Rico and they have good construction standards but many of their historic building are vulnerable. I’ve also lived and visited other islands and I know what I’m talking about since construction and architecture are one of my favorite topics. I’m not picking on anyone island, but merely making an observation that would benefit all residents in the Caribbean as well as bridge the gap between the have and have nots.
