40 Devastating Photos of Hurricane Irma’s Destruction You Wish Weren’t True

All of these show how truly scary Irma is.

Recently, humanity’s strength was put into test after Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston and some parts of Louisiana. While everyone was still recovering from the disaster, a new one in the form of Hurricane Irma came. This time around, though, it was a lot stronger and larger than Harvey.

Irma’s arrival forced the entire Caribbean – and other states from the southernmost part – to declare a crisis. It reportedly destroyed at least 95 percent of Barbuda, Saint Martin, and the British Virgin Islands. Some people were stranded while others were left homeless. Even more, access to electricity, water supply, and phone service was impossible.

At the time of this writing, there were already 10 reported deaths caused by Hurricane Irma. Both Cuba and the Bahamas were already advised to brace for impact, while the entire state of Florida was advised for complete evacuation.

Check out below some of the ghastly photos of damaged areas caused by the terrible huricane.

Kim Jong-un took “keeping one’s privacy” to the next level.

Kim Jong-un took “keeping one’s privacy” to the next level. North Korean officials made sure that he will have a safe arrival for his sit-down with President Donald Trump in Singapore for the Trump-Kim summit. To make this possible, they used two decoy airplanes to protect the Supreme Leader's stools. Yes, you read that right.
