Hurricane Irma

September 5, 2017

We are only thankful we are south of the centre of this hurricane. We are thinking of all the people on the islands who are going to be impacted by this event.

And yet it’s not over with this one. Just 5 days behind it is another tropical storm called Jose. Not yet a hurricane but slowly growing in intensity.

Even here in Grenada we feel Irma’s impact. Wind is from the west, clouds move north east and the temperature and humidity is soaring.

Great infrared photo of Irma approaching Antigua. Guadeloupe is the island to the south.
