Queen Silvia doubles up the tiara appearances in Germany

So I survived my first big hurricane. I was not in one of my city’s evacuation zones and Matthew’s damage was not as severe as I had planned and prepared for – just minimal tree debris. I didn’t even lose power like I thought I would and didn’t need to dip into my power outage stash (though other parts of the city lost power).

I consider myself very lucky that I did not sustain much damage. Other areas along the coast sustained significant damage and flooding, and nearly 900 people were killed in Haiti. The Weather Channel has a good list of relief organizations if you would like to help out the communities affected by Hurricane Matthew.
