    AK member "reydelaplaya" has not posted since the hurricane passed over PR. From the way he described his situation before the storm I expect he is OK. Does anyone have any ideas about any way to reach out to him? Are there any other AK members in PR?

    Hope he is OK and just having Internet provider issues. It seems like he utilizes the cell network and towers can take a hit in hurricanes. He described his place as sorta built like a bunker so hopefully he was inside and safe.

    That's what I was thinking. He is probably OK, just unable to communicate.

    He seems to be a resourceful guy. I'll bet he's fine.

    Folks down there have taken a terrible blow. Let's all hope they can rebuild stronger and better.

    I heard on the news that many of their communications towers were out of commission. Same thing is going on here in CA with all the fires.

    Sincerely hope it's just a communication issue.

    Hi folks! I'm ok! Thank you for your support and concern - that's really awesome of you all! I was alerted to this thread from the other one, and by the time I had written my reply for here, I had lost data signal yet again. Tonight it seems to be holding a little better though.

    Things could be plenty worse, so even though I don't have electricity, running water, and only intermittent cellular signal at the moment, I'm thankful that my puppydog and I are alive and in one piece, and for a great group of friends here on AK worried for my safety. But rest assured, I'm here, and doing ok, all things considered.

    Hope to be able to reconnect under more normal circumstances really soon so I can rejoin the conversations of receivers, turntables, speakers, and all that fun stuff! LOL

    Thanks again! Cheers and best wishes to you all - see you in the other threads hopefully soon!

    - rey
