Hurricane Irma Devastates Almost The Entire Island For Barbuda
Sh!t got real in the Caribbean yesterday.
It is reported that 90% of the buildings and vehicles on the island of Barbuda have been destroyed. The eye of the storm literally sat over the island at around 2am Wednesday morning and spun 180 mph winds across the land, so much so that the National Weather Service’s wind-measuring anemometer broke.
Images of the damage are awe-inspiring and absolutely heart-breaking.
Sadly, the threat of additional catastrophic weather events isn’t over as meteorologists keep a close watch on Hurricane Jose that is currently following closely in Irma’s path.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all the territories that have been or could be affected by these storms.
