Here is a little sample of what we can expect in Florida in the coming days when Hurricane Irma makes landfall
St. Martin (INTELLIHUB) — The U.S. Virgin Islands were devastated by Hurricane Irma’s 185 mph winds and severe flooding as residents and vacationers struggle to cope with the aftermath.
The massive category 5 storm overturned cars, leveled buildings, and downed trees and power lines.
Officials expect the electricity the be out to be out for the next 4-6 months and guns have already been confiscated.
Hundreds of sailboats, yachts, and other boats were damaged as well and cars could be seen covered up to their windows in water.
Many homes were also badly destroyed by the raging winds and floodwaters.
One hotel was also badly damaged.
“Look at the lobby,” one woman said. “Look at the hotel, it’s all smashed up.”
In St. Bart appliances could be seen floating down the street.
More of the same is expected in Florida in the coming days as Irma inches her way westward.
