See a Syracuse couple's view in the Carribean as they ride out Hurricane Irma

ST. THOMAS (WSYR-TV) - Bill and Tracy Vaughn, Central New York natives, enjoyed a few days of rest and relaxation on the beach before Hurricane Irma forced a change in plans.

Now, the couple is riding out the violent storm in their hotel room in St. Thomas, an island in the Carribean.

The Vaughn's were updating NewsChannel 9 throughout Wednesday morning, until we last had contact with them when the storm made landfall.

Phone lines and internet are reportedly down all across the island.

Before their lines went down, the couple watched as winds increased and the rain became torrential.
