    When are we all going to stop this “island people” nonsense.. no man is an island- we all need each other.. God is Love and he that doesn’t love doesn’t know God.. these are our sisters and brothers for God’s sake.. we keep bringing sin against our land.. instead of looking to God and seeking forgiveness for our sins before it’s too late some of us are on here chatting folly feels like we are living in the days of Noah.. who have ears let them listen ..

    Every story that comes up on this news site some fool with an agenda is the first to blog then everyone jumps into the silliness. If there is any Obeah that's it right there. This fool needs tracking down and given a wolfing.

    This earthquake has nothing to do with island people nor obeah, this is a warning for all of us here on the BVI especially the nasty ignorant ungrateful ungodly people.
    On Friday 17th July 2020, a Tsunami is going g to pass over the BVI and destroy 80% of this territory, I am only here to warn, better be prepared, it's coming , Just like Jonah I was sent here to warn.

      Judith Fahie we are hours away from dooms day for the BVI. Any final words of warning and preparation? I most definitely want to be a part of the surviving 20%.

      Judith Fahie I prepared fully for the Tsunami...large oxygen tank with fins and diving masks. I realized that the 17th elapsed without any impact. Any followup words? What happened?
