Kenny was fortunately not there at the time of the hurricane. His friends, however, took shelter at his house, but no one was injured. Kenny recalls:

My house was, we thought, a very safe place for everyone because it was built with stone, concrete [and] bricks in an area of the island where we didn't feel like we were going to get a direct wind. So I felt like if they went downstairs it would be a very safe place. 

But the house got heavily damaged due to hurricane. 

I had 200 mph wind-tested windows throughout my house, and every window in the house just blew out, so these people were really scared. They found more shelter in a big closet and were in that closet for a long time, and they made it. Luckily, a lot of people made it.

Kenny is considering repairing the house to restore it to its previous state.
