- Update from Martinique

After Bertha.

We had a few squalls starting from around midday, a few gusts of wind too but 
nothing too strong.

Different parts of Martinique got differing amounts of rain. The north had 
around 2-3 inches but not much more than that. Electricity stopped for a while 
and pretty much all the centre of Martinique was cut for a few hours.

Worse than all of that, the stage of the "Tour des Yoles Rondes" between 
François and Trinité was cancelled :-(

Hopefully this is a nice wake up call for those that haven't as yet prepared. 
It could be the quietest season ever, but it only takes that one to hit you ! 
Matches, candles, water etc... Go stock up now.
