As Hurricane Tears through House, They Huddle in Shower and Say ‘Goodbye’ to Triplet Babies

Those living in the path of destruction of Hurricane Irma had many concerns. What would happen to their homes?

Would they have access to water, food, and power after the storm? Mainly, would they survive?

A British couple shared all of these concerns plus another that was much more unique. Kate Jackson, 33, and her fiancé Alex Ashman, 31, had infant triplets to protect.

The couple lived on the British Virgin Islands with their three daughters. Beatrice, Charlotte, and Isabella were between 5 and 6 months old at the time.

Kate’s mother had a home on the largest of the islands, Tortola, so they decided to stay there during the storm. Christine Jackson, Kate’s sister, stayed with them.

Nick Cunha and his wife, Jayne Gray, were friends who sought shelter in the Tortola home, too. Kate and Ashman could use all the help they could get when Hurricane Irma tore through the area.

Everybody huddled together in a tiny bathroom. The terror in the room rose as various parts of the house were being destroyed by the hurricane.

They all crammed into the shower while the balcony, kitchen, and then the rest of the house crumbled. The three women each held one of the triplets.

The two men, Ashman and Cunha, held a headboard over them. The roof above them was torn off by the strong winds.

The bathroom walls surrounding them were caving in. Cunha opened the bathroom door to see if there was a way the group to get to a solid concrete generator room.

The door blew open revealing that there was no more house. The bathroom had been recently constructed and was the only remaining room still standing.

Cunha told The Sun, “It was a slow-motion moment. That was like staring at God.”

They were coming to the realization that they might not make it, so they started to say goodbye to each other. The thought of the couple saying goodbye to their triplets as they hid in the shower is heartbreaking.

A window was found that the group was able to climb through to reach the generator room. The hurricane tore apart their homes, but did not tear apart this group as they all miraculously survived — including the triplets.

OMG!! WTF!!: Rep. Ilhan Omar Tells CNN That She Doesn’t Know Why Her Anti-Israel Tweets Would Offend Jewish People

Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her anti-Israel sentiments on CNN on Thursday, saying that she doesn’t know why those comments would offend the Jewish-American community.

Omar famously tweeted in 2012 that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”

When asked about the tweet by CNN, Omar responded, “oh, that’s a really regrettable way of expressing that. I don’t know how my comments would be offensive to Jewish-Americans.”

Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.

Omar added that her comments were “precisely addressing what was happening during the Gaza war,” and that she was “clearly” speaking about the way the “Israeli regime” was “conducting themselves in that war.”

Oh?!

Without any follow-up or push back, CNN moved on to asking the accused antisemitic congresswoman about her opinions on Rep. Steve King and his “racist remarks.”

While her perceived antisemitism is given a pass — Rep. King is boldly branded without any hesitation.

King has repeatedly stated that he was taken out of context and disavowed white supremacy and all forms of hatred – while Omar stands behind her bigotry. Yet, only King is facing consequences and blow back.
