But in a more serious tone, Sam stressed, “homes can be rebuilt but lives can’t”.
He added in a lengthy Instagram post: “Glad to say that all humans on Necker are okay although a lot of buildings destroyed.
“Very concerned for our friends and everyone on the neighbouring islands and people in its path.
“Please don’t take this hurricane lightly if it is heading your way. If your building is not very solid, do find somewhere safe!”
Sam blamed Hurricane Irma’s impact on the lack of action to reign in climate change.
Photos from inside the island retreat captured panicked staff members moving furniture, kayaks and other water sport equipment inside.
Sir Richard – who has a net worth of around £3.8billion, described the atmosphere before the storm, as “eerie but beautiful”.
All guests had been evacuated from the celeb hangout and staff members have been moved to the main house for safety.
Justifying his decision to stay on Necker Island as the hurricane passed, Sir Richard Necker has “really strong buildings” with hurricane blinds that can handle “extreme weather pretty well”.
Hurricane Irma had already lashed the Caribbean islands of Barbuda, St Barthelemy and St Martin, before it passed Necker.
The “potentially catastrophic” storm is churning along a path pointing to Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba before possibly hitting Florida over the weekend. – The Sun
