(CANCUN, Mx.) – Hurricane Beryl is an unusual early season storm that is leaving a trail of destruction in the Caribbean this week. 


When some local families planned their vacations months ago, they weren’t expecting a July hurricane to interrupt the fun. 


Hurricane Beryl reached Jamaica as a Category 4 storm on Wednesday night and caused at least two deaths, left hundreds homeless, and brought power outages and flooding.


Lawrenceburg realtor Angie Huddleston and her family are in Jamaica and braved the storm. 


She provided an update Thursday night that her family is safe, however, internet and cell phone service remains spotty. 


The hurricane has now been downgraded to a Category 2 as it heads toward Mexico. 


Preparing For Impact: Batesville family in Cancun

We asked her how the family is preparing for the hurricane:


“We have been charging all devices today, battery packs, filling the tub with water, bringing extra snacks and water to the room and have card games ready,” she told The 812. 


Fitzsimmons has been tracking this storm before it was even given a name. 


She felt confident about going to Cancun despite the forecast, but did inform all of her travel clients who also had a Caribbean trip planned this week. 


Fitzsimmons says this is a prime example of why it is important to get travel protection when planning vacations. 


There will be no breakfast buffet in the morning so resort-goers spent Thursday night filling up containers at the buffet. They are all now confined to their rooms until Hurricane Beryl passes.


Hurricane Beryl is expected to hit Cancun with wind speeds around 105 miles per hour around 7 a.m. Friday.
