The only preparation that island could have taken for what happened there, was evacuation. And I doubt that they even would have been able to efficiently evacuate with the time they had, once they realized, this was not going to be your run of the mill hurricane.
This was an island were generations had experienced hurricanes of varying intensity and very amounts of damage in the past. They had no previous hurricanes of this magnitude to even compare.
