In 2004, the Cayman Islands faced the most devastating hurricane in recent history. Hurricanes are not a phenomenon to this trio of islands located in the western Caribbean Sea; right in the middle of Hurricane Alley. Unfortunately, everything about Hurricane Ivan - from his enormous size to his slow speed - conspired to wreak near total ruin on everything and everyone in his path. For 36 long and harrowing hours Hurricane Ivan tormented the Islands, dumping rains, gusting winds in excess of 200mph and causing waves to wash over the sea-level land, flooding hundreds of homes and businesses. The only saving graces for the residents of this God-fearing nation were their earnest prayers, low-tides and daylight which allowed almost all of them to escape certain death. While everyone experienced the same hurricane, each person had their own individually horrific encounter with this category five monster of nature. Four of them are recounted here. Chelsea M. Rivers is an imperfectly devoted wife and mother to three beautiful children, Jordan, Branden & Amelia. Born in Texas, she moved to the Cayman Islands as a very young child and never left. Island living has influenced every facet of her life and she is in no hurry to leave - even with the threat of a category five hurricane! Chelsea lives with her family and many animals in the district of West Bay at the north-western tip of Grand Cayman, the largest of the three Cayman Islands.
