Animals In Hurricane Irma

Wed 13th September 2017 (0 comments)
Last week warnings were sent out across the Caribbean about a potentially devastating category 5 hurricane that was heading towards Central America from the Atlantic. Islands throughout the Caribbean began preparing for hurricane Irma to hit with thousands of people being evacuated from their homes as they began to brace themselves for the storm.

On September 6th 2017, hurricane Irma reached its peak intensity with winds of up to 185mph battering the Caribbean causing utter devastation to everything in its path. As it headed towards Cuba the storm was downgraded to a category 4 hurricane but that did not mean things were going to be getting any easier for the local people. After devastating parts of Cuba it headed towards Florida, wiping out power and leaving thousands homeless across the peninsula.
