  1. 5 heavy smoke and ash falling from the sky and the trade winds are very high and have been all night. The smoke was so irritating to the eyes and lungs that tourists and locals alike are leaving the beaches. It is like a forest fire is nearby. My back porch and pool are full of ash and I have had to close up my house and put on the air to filter the air. For the last three days I have had burning eyes and throat and head aches from the cane burning.
