There's a tv  series on Channel 5 about HMS Manchester on drug finding patrol in the Caribbean. Here's the Podcast http://www.five.tv/shows/royal-navy-caribbean-patrol/episodes/episode-4-268


Once the ads. have been shown there's some good footage as the ship encounters the periphery of Hurricane Earl August 29 last year.(half-way through put curser  to start watching over the word caption wording 'is' on urgent storm alert' and after this is footage of the  ship's helicopter  encountering a squall after landing on Anguilla.

Next Monday at 9.00pm the programme shows when they visited another island that has been hit badly- they didn't say which island or which hurricane but the trailer showed a lot of devastation. Maybe it was Fiona which was right behind Earl  http://www.caribbean360.com/index.php/news/38140.html   or maybe  Gaston that followed Fiona.
