Billionaire owner of Virgin, Richard Branson, and his staff survived Hurricane Irma by hunkering down in his wine cellar. Makes sense as the instructions, if you are going to stay put, are to get as low under ground as possible.
Before heading down he joked: “Knowing our wonderful team as I do, I suspect there will be little wine left in the cellar when we are able to emerge.”
The team has all been reported as safe. We continue to hope and pray for the safety of all those still in the deadly hurricane’s path.
Our hearts and prayers go out to all the people whose lives have been devasted by both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey.
