    Latest Note from Captain Lovejoy: Latest Note from Tonia and Shannon in Bermuda : Shannon and I are at the BIOS campus in Saint George, Bermuda on their research ship, which is the safest place to be - totally independent power and communication. Shannon is the only EMT on campus and has been requested to stay with the students and educators in the school library, their safest building. I will stay on the ship. We just had a briefing and it looks like the eye will pass about 2am - we are expecting to feel the winds around 9pm. It is a category 4 right now, which is pretty serious and more than Bermuda has seen in a few years. However, everyone seems well prepared and smart - backups for food, power, water, etc. I will write again later today, but know that I am safe and in good hands. The ship is massive and and the captain and crew are excellent - looks to be in good form on the dock. (The crew are all from the Philippines and everyone has worked on the ship, which travels around the world for 100+ days at sea in the N. Atlantic, for about 10 years together).

    Keep you posted! XO

  • Hello Beautiful Nation followers! A quick update on Tonia and Shannon, who are currently in Bermuda, where Hurricane Gonzalo is headed. They are safe, but expecting a category 4. If you have been tracking the hurricane, you can also learn more about the Saffir-Simpson scale for measuring wind strength: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutsshws.php
