Hungry Ghost Month

Voodoo And Santeria Rituals To Ward Off Tropical Storm Fay

When hurricanes threaten, Key West residents head to the grotto to pray and light candles. Sister Gabriel's blessing still seems to be working. Since the dedication of the shrine, Key West has been spared any major hurricane devastation. Fay could start pelting parts of the Keys and South Florida late Monday or early Tuesday as a strong tropical storm or minimal hurricane. Aside from wind damage, most of the islands sit at sea level and could face some limited flooding from Fay's storm surge

By Mickey Of Miami


Key West as the sun rose today the almost empty streets and light rain Monday ahead of approaching Tropical Storm Fay, while public works crews cleared sidewalks of newspaper stands that could become projectiles in high winds. A hurricane watch was in effect for most of the Keys and along Florida's west coast to Tarpon Springs. Just how powerful the hurricane becomes will be "highly dependent on the exact track that Fay takes due to land interaction with Haiti and Cuba." Said The National Hurricane Center. Last few years year's hurricane season was the most destructive on record. Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana and Mississippi and was blamed for more than 1,570 deaths among Louisiana residents alone.

All tourists were awakened and urged to evacuate but many bars and restaurants remained open, even if crowds were considerably thinner than typical for this time of year. But Voodooist and Santeria Priest wen to the Beach to do their grand spells and hexes to ward off this dangerous storms approach.

At 5 a.m. EDT Monday, the storm's center was located over central Cuba and about 155 miles south-southeast of Key West and was moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph. Maximum sustained wind speeds were near 50 mph. Forecasters expected the storm to begin moving to the north soon.

Many of the islands Voodoo and Santeria groups prayed since midnight at a town shrine known as The Grotto, where an etching on a stone reads, "As long as the Grotto stands, Key West will never again experience the full brunt of a hurricane." It was built in 1922 by nuns outside a Roman Catholic church, three years after a catastrophic storm. So far, the 86-year-old invocation has worked every time.

"You can always feel a powerful spiritual force and intense energy emanating from the Grotto." Said Yvonne Brown a member of "Cazadores Cubanos del fantasma de Miami". She and Marie Santiago Founder of the group came to Key West just to see the power of the Grotto at work, and to see what they could document.


Key West did suffer the brunt of Hurricane Georges in 1998, which made a direct hit on the island as a Category 2 storm with 105 mph winds. Key West also felt the western eyewall of a Category 3 hurricane in September 1948. The hurricane's calm eye passed over Boca Chica Key 8 miles to the east of Key West, bringing winds that were clocked at 122 mph at Boca Chica Airport before the anemometer blew away.

Key West was last seriously affected by a hurricane in 2005, when Category 3 Wilma sped past. The town escaped widespread wind damage, but a storm surge flooded hundreds of homes and some businesses. The deadliest storm to hit the island was a Category 4 hurricane in 1919 that killed up to 900 people, many of them offshore on ships that sank. " The real Ghosts of these poor lost souls are said to haunt the surf when a storm is near." "Sometimes they appear at least a week or two in advance to worn the islanders of what is to come." said Brown. "There also have been many, many reports of seeing their real ghosts walk down the very streets on days and nights leading up to a deadly storms approach." Many say this happened 2005." Paranormal activity in Key West only gets stronger when a storm is near."

I personally would have joined the "Cazadores Cubanos del fantasma de Miami" group and went along for the ride had I not have previous engagements. I really wanted to see if I could personally pick up on the paranormal activity this storm generates to the island.

" We will be doing a full paranormal Investigation and plan to stay on the Island as the storm gets worse." Said Brown by cell phone. "We went to the beach as the might surf pounded away and saw several Voodoo and hoodoo groups doing their annual Hurricane protection rituals." said Brown." We will update you of our findings as soon as we are able. And of course whether you believe in this investigations cause or not please pray for us that we make it OK."

Key West Voodoo man Geraldo was at the beach since midnight. "Each time there is a hurricane in the gulf we perform our hurricane ritual at a moments notice." Geraldo said, The high priest of the key West Voodoo community told Brown. "Each year it is practiced with special prayers and chants to their Vodoun, the Loa Agwe." " The personification of the ocean, and the patron of sailors and fishermen. " "Usually only members of our group are involved and we do not seek media attention," Said Geraldo. "What we do is secret to our closed Key West societies circle, and not all details are given to the outside world." But Brown and the "Cazadores Cubanos del fantasma de Miami" were asked to help them along with the actual ritual.

Rituals for Agwe, (Agoue) are held on the beach by the Ocean, and offerings to him are floated on hand made rafts or small boats. Agwe is associated with the catholic St. Ulrich. At sunrise today as the first light of dawn, Geraldo and his group set afloat 200 small boats and rafts into the Atlantic ocean as they have done before this year . "We have got to call on the mighty voodoo Lwa and our ancestors for help and get real serious about it." Says Geraldo. " We put something in each boat or raft, we feed her and offer her cabbage and limes, which means, 'We are wishing hurricane Fay be decimated,' and sweet beets, which means 'May Fay be removed from the world.' "We give Agwe sweet carrots which asks, 'May our merits be increased against hurricane Fay.'"

Local Santeria followers like Jacintha Maria Calayo says her group does many old tried and true rituals to ward of bad storms to Key West and Florida. We take the blood of fresh chickens and that of 9 doves and a three year old he goat and pour it into the wave as a storm approaches. We feed the fierce storms, and ask them nicely to push itself away out to sea.
