Some friends of mine live most of the time in Papua New Guinea, but are currently living in North Carolina.
Truthfully, I've never met these "friends," who are actually friends of the daughter of someone who is a real-life, in-the-flesh type friend of ours. But I've followed their story and prayed for them ever since they came to the United States to deliver quintuplets, six years ago.
Last I knew, they were still doing fine in North Carolina, and this is what they had to say about their experience, despite school and church closures and curfews:
The rain we've had from Florence is much less than we have on a near-daily basis in PNG.
Granted, they're not in the area hardest-hit by the hurricane. But it still offers an eye-opening window on other climates.
