>> eds a storm chaser who was documenting the storm as it came ashore from the hotel. here's how he described it in his own words.

>> it started to come in as the sun came up. i went out with my camera and soon realized that it was just whiteout conditions. i went right to the edge where the water was hitting these shacks. it was going up and gouging them and the stuff would peel off every now and then. the wind really picked up. i jumped in the pool. i figured i would be safer in the pool than out there in the open. after a while i started to get out of the pool. it started picking up even more and it just kept blowing and blowing and blowing. it didn't let up for what seemed like hours. i told people at the resort, the locals, i said this is a really bad storm. you need to get out of here. there is a church, about three feet above sea level . and it was a stone's throw from the water. it had a bunch of kids in there. there were a lot of people that got in trouble on the coastline. they need water and they need it quick. they need food.
