Posts Tagged ‘Tornado’

Today was a weird day and sad in a way. First of all a waterspout (trompa marina in spanish) in case you don’t know is a Tornado but it forms in the ocean, in case the waterspout go into land it is then a tornado. Don’t be alarm, it wasn’t a strong tornado that passed by Puerto Rico but it was weird definitely, sadly the inauguration of the Mayaguez Central American and Caribbean games was due to start today but the climate didn’t allow the celebration to took place, well get to that later now I am going to tell my experience. I went to get a haircut in the house of the barber with my friend, he work in his home, around 12 PM. He started with me first to do his job, while I was getting the haircut my friend said: “What is the forecast for today? the sky is weird, it was sunny then now is all black and cloudy” everyone there answered like yea is true, nothing is in the forecast for today that I know. Then the wind started to blow and rain to fall, there was a blackout and my haircut stayed incomplete, yea I didn’t looked nice :|. So we enter his home to hide from the wind and rain, the wind was probably around 30 MPH but all happen suddenly we were in shock, I even received a call from my friend Jomarie asking me what was going on, because she was on the road driving and all that started to happen. After the wind and rain pass, we had to go to another barber so he finish my haircut because electricity never came in the previous barber home. The wind was very strong, we all were like what the fuck is going on. Later we find out it was a waterspout that hit land and caused some damage.

video when the lights and all that stuff felt because the winds in the new Mayaguez stadium.

The sad part was that Mayaguez got the worse part, the central american and caribbean games are going to be celebrated there and today was the inauguration event. Sadly it was cancelled because all the lights, kiosk, stage went flying and was seriously damage. The event was postponed for tomorrow but the games schedule wasn’t affected thankfully, all goes according to schedule except the inauguration event that is due tomorrow. It was just a scary moment, nothing serious. There was a few people injured but no one die. The hurricane season starts soon, Puerto Rico is in the way of Hurricanes, luckily we don’t get a direct and strong impact since 1998. God is sending warnings, we should prepare because worse things will happen sooner or later.
