Shocking Before And After Photographs Reveal Hurricane Irma’s Destructive Power

The hurricane season is now well and truly upon us, and 2017 is already the worst in recent history. The state of Texas was ravaged by Hurricane Harvey at the end of August, and now Hurricane Irma is set to cause chaos in the Caribbean and Florida.

The category five storm, which is the most powerful Atlantic storm in history, hit land on Thursday morning and caused unprecedented devastation in its wake. These shocking photographs of the Caribbean islands show the damage it caused in a matter of hours.

1. With wind speeds of 185 mph, Hurricane Irma left little of this resort behind…

2. The Waterfront Beach Plaza Hotel in St Martin is now unrecognizable…

3. The Honky-Tonk Bar didn’t stand a chance…

4. This popular celebrity hotel has been left a ruin…

Tragically, Hurricane Irma has already claimed the lives of ten people when it swept through the Caribbean islands, and this number will inevitably increase. Why? Because it’s more than likely that Hurricane Irma will become stronger.
