Hurricane Irma Red Cross Donation
Just off the West African coast, clouds formed and winds picked up shy of the Guinea-Bissau shoreline. The gusts averaged around 29 mph. Little did we know that this storm was to develop across Cape Verde and evolve into a category five hurricane as it charged towards the Caribbean.
Hurricane Irma is the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane recorded in history. It made its landfall on Wednesday 6th of September, causing devastation and tragic loss of life in Barbuda and Antigua, before going on to wreak apocalyptic scenes throughout other Caribbean islands including St Martin, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
