21462545_10159252060170103_1586057979793777868_nGay couple Kerman Haynes, 40, and Andrew Burruss, 32, of Atlanta, were ending a two-week vacay to the British Virgin Islands when Irma arrived, laying waste to the entire area.

Wishing them and everyone in harm's way all the best. If anyone has ideas for Kerman and Andrew, try leaving a comment on either man's FB page.
