Good morning. I think most important is to tell you this is not a storm like Dorian because it is much weaker. That does not mean, though, that you can't have major impacts dough let's talk about what we're dealing with. It is right now a potential tropical cyclone. It means it's a group of thunderstorms, a little disorganized but think there's a pretty likely shot this becomes a depression if not a tropical storm through the weekend.

Hardware kits and plastic sheeting were passed out and the storm could impact the search and recovery efforts on the islands where we know that the death toll at this point is at least 50 people expected to rise and the search is on for 1300 people who are missing as the country braces for another storm. Michael. All right, tough situation there, Marcus, thank you very much.
