Saint Martin: Shocking drone footage shows total devastation left by Hurricane IrmaWeather Sint Maarten, Netherlands - 07 September 2017
A string of Caribbean islands have been left stunned and devastated by the destructive force of Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest storms ever to hit the region. Irma smashed into St. Martin, the island was directly in the storm's path, and the half-French, half-Dutch island suffered horrendously. Drone footage recorded on September 7, 2017 shows streets inundated with water and homes devastated by winds in Cole Bay and Simpson Bay,. The toll in the Caribbean from Irma already stands at 20: nine in the French Caribbean, four in the United States Virgin Islands, three in Puerto Rico, two on the Dutch side of St. Martin, one in Barbuda and one in Anguilla.
