What Is Left Of Richard Branson's Island

Richard Branson's Private Island Is Nearly Destroyed

I couldn't imagine experiencing a Category 5 on a tiny island in the Carribean.  Never the less, sir Richard Branson experienced just that.  Yes, Richard Branson is super rich and can easily afford to rebuild everything lost but more importantly... his social is filled with messages urging action and donations to the people who's lively hoods and homes were taken because of Hurricane Irma.  This is just a further example of how powerful Hurricane Irma actually was.



Experienced a night of howling wind and rain as #hurricaneirma edges closer. Expecting full force in about 4 hours, we'll retreat into a concrete wine cellar under the house. Wonderful team calm and upbeat.

Much of the buildings and vegetation on Necker has been destroyed or badly damaged. But British Virgin Islands Hurricane #Irma story is not about Necker - it is about the tens of thousands of people who have lost their homes and their livelihoods. @virginunite is coordinating aid to local BVI families & communities affected - please donate to help http://www.virgin.com/unite/bvi-community-support-appeal

All of the team who stayed on Necker and Moskito during the hurricane are safe and well. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane #Irma in the BVI & Caribbean. I’ve never seen anything like it. Urge all in its path to seek strong shelter & stay safe. Necker & whole area has been completely devastated. @virginunite have donated to @britishredcross appeal to provide aid, @virginatlantic flight to help recovery. Urge everyone to donate & support any way they can. Thanks for all your well-wishes & support https://virg.in/oNP
