From August 30, 2017 – September 12, 2017, Hurricane Irma banged through the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos Islands, Antigua, the Virgin Islands, and many more/ Hardest hit though was Florida state and he island of Barbuda. For the first time in 300 years, Barbuda was left empty because of all the destruction. Many people have set up websites to donate money. One of the Barbuda-relief sites has raised about $20,000 to help rebuild!

Hurricane Irma left about 15 million without power (75% of Florida’s population without power). 30,000 out of state workers came to help, but the job could still took a long time. In Highlands County, Lafayette County, and Monroe County there was an average of 92% without power.

For the first time ever “the landlocked city” known as Atlanta, Georgia had a tropical storm warning. Landlocked means almost entirely surrounded by land – there are no beaches in Atlanta. For Hurricane Irma to hit Atlanta it would have had to travel at least 267 miles inland.

Hurricane Irma was rated the 7th worst hurricane of all time because of its landfall pressure.

Stay safe!!
