"The sky is so beautifully clear, and they said that the sea looked like glass today," she said, encouraging individuals in Jamaica to "please stay inside."

Hurricane Gilbert occurred in September of 1988 and made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane in Jamaica. It later peaked as a Category 5. "Hurricane Gilbert was the first category five hurricane to strike land in the Atlantic Basin since Hurricane Camille in 1969, and the strongest hurricane to strike Mexico in modern history," the National Weather Service reports.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Sheryl praised the new Netflix superhero series Supacell, which she'd watched the night before. She connected the series' message to the prospect of her son's wedding continuing as planned.
