PHUKET: -- Well-known Phuket expats Muzza Nordstrand and Chantal Fernandes and their children are safe and sound after narrowly avoiding the brunt of Hurricane Irma at their temporary “home away from home” in the Dominican Republic.


Hurricane Irma left a trail of devastation across the Dominican Republic last Thursday as the then-Category 5 storm and its 175kmh winds ripped through the Caribbean as it made its way to its current location on the Florida coast.


Mr Nordstrand, who for 16 years has been a central figure in Phuket’s sailing industry, and Ms Fernandes, who spent nine years with the Amanpuri resort on Phuket’s west coast – where the two were married 16 years ago – had temporary relocated fro seven months to the Dominican Republic from their home at Baan Manik in Thalang.
