Irma’s Destruction Leaves Floridians in the Dark
With maximum sustained winds of 298kph, Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc across several countries before weakening as it made landfall along the coast of Florida.
Caribbean islanders began counting the cost of Hurricane Irma after the brutal storm left a trail of death, destruction and chaos that could take the tourist-dependent region years to recover from.
Photographs captured in the days and hours following Hurricane Irma show the scale of the devastation caused by the record-breaking weather event.
Hurricane Irma hit Florida on Sunday as a powerful Category 4 hurricane, ripping off roofs, flooding streets and has now knocked out power to roughly 7 million homes and businesses.
Authorities say one person died in Florida during the storm. At least 36 people died in the Caribbean.
Irma weakened to a tropical storm on Monday, pushing into Georgia with maximum sustained winds at 60 mph but still managing to unleash more destruction, including storm surge flooding.
“The forecast track takes the center then into Georgia tomorrow and ultimately with the system weakening, becoming a tropical depression by Tuesday,” Ed Rappaport of the National Hurricane Center said.
But behind Irma was a trail of destruction.
Miami escaped Irma’s center but was still hammered by flooding and high winds. Gusts approached 100 miles per hour.
