Ken Armour a longtime member of MORE moved home last year to the Caribbean island of Dominica, lets hope that Ken, his family, friends and rovers are all OK.

Kenneth wanted me to let you all know he and his dad survived, as well as his landrovers. Their house and other buildings didn't do as well. It was a month before there
 was any cell service and most of the island has no electricity. They are running on a generator and have repaired enough to live. All the power lines in his area are down and will be for months so no computer.

I found this clip on youtube a while ago, I think it's Kens brother, I sent him an email but did not get a reply.

Good to hear Ken and his father survived, the devastation must be heart breaking for them, with the amount of tools and equipment he brought with him he's probably better set up than the Gov.
