Margie did call me from a Sat phone later Sunday night. I only had 30 seconds on the phone with her and she could not hear me because of a helicopter and a generator! Her and Jones are both fine and the house fared well. She also said they are better off than most.
I am waiting a call from her again - I have a list of questions this ready. You can contact me through facebook messenger: facebook.com/nerdracer

Jon Adams and Caribbean Buzz have posted a lot of aerial footage. You can see Villa Iola in a distance at 1:34 & 1:50. It still has a roof and looks to have no major damage!
Jones and Margie are now listed on the safe list. I have not been in contact with them myself but folks on the island have spoke with them. I still have no idea on the condition of Iola.
You can message me on facebook if you hear anything or have questions. facebook.com/nerdracer
