Subject: Hurricane Georges update in Freeport, Grand Bahama


My name is Cassandra Ketchup and I'm e-mailing from Freeport, Grand
Bahama, the weather over here has been fine, we have only experienced a
little rain and that has only come and gone.  We have all been listeng
to the U.S news and have heard of the warnings toward the Carribean and
the Bahama Islands but we have yet to experience any of the effect from
Georges.  There are times when we notice the clouds trying to over take
our sky but there have not been any changes.  As for our preparation for
the upcoming hurricane there has been little or none done toward this.
