Deon Edwin
On Friday, Deon Edwin (190-G-92, college: Kent St., agency: Interperformances), 24, got a call from his brother in the British Virgin Islands.
Edwin, who graduated from Kent State University in June, learned the basics: All of his family who lives there his mom, brother, cousin and uncle are OK. But Hurricane Irma destroyed their houses and the island.
The phone call lasted all of two minutes as others clamored to call their loved ones with the limited WiFi the island could provide.
That was three days ago.
It's still sad and it still hits me hard, because that's home for me, Edwin said on Monday. I'm still kind of waiting to hear back from my brother. At least I know everybody's OK now it's just trying to come together as a community.
Edwin lived in the Virgin Islands until 2009. The crystal blue waters and lush greenery that he remembers are nowhere to be found in photos of the island today.
Instead, photos of his home country show people sleeping in their cars or in houses with no roofs, greenery strewn in every direction and thousands of buildings destroyed.
"It was like a paradise," Edwin said. "I've seen pictures of a third world country, and now it looks like that."
Edwin said no one can leave or enter the country because Irma destroyed the ports and airport as well.
He plans to send money to the family as soon as mail services resume.
