3 Hurricanes Now Active In The Atlantic Basin!
Hurricane Irma continues on its path of rampage across the Caribbean having already claimed several lives and caused widespread destruction.
The powerful storm destroyed a significant portion of the buildings on Barbuda as it passed over the small island.
Gaston Browne, the Prime Minister of Barbuda, said the island is “literally rubble” amid scenes of “total carnage”. He also said: “The entire housing stock was damaged. It is just total devastation.”
Irma’s death toll in the region is currently 10, but that figure is expected to rise. At least one person died in Anguilla and at least eight persons have reportedly died in the French Caribbean island territories of St. Martin and St. Barthelemy.
It is estimated that some 95 per cent of the French side of Saint-Martin has been destroyed by the cyclone.
But now there are two more hurricanes brewing in the Atlantic. On Wednesday afternoon, tropical storms Jose and Katia (pictured below) strengthened increasing the number of hurricanes currently active in the Atlantic basin to three.
This is the first time since 2010 that three active hurricanes have been simultaneously active in the Atlantic.
