Hurricane Irma formed on August 30, 2017 and became a Category 5 hurricane when it grew to 185 miles per hour wind gusts. Hurricane Irma was the third-costliest hurricane on record causing more than $100 billion dollars in damage (2017 USD). There were 134 fatalities as of October 10th.
A British tourist on the island of Saint Martin tweeted from a concrete stairwell where he hid from Hurricane Irma’s wrath:
@woolfallalex
May be my last tweet as power out and noise now apocalyptic. This is like a movie I never want to see. #Irma2017 #StMaarten
In this eBook, In The Eye of Hurricane Irma, I write about our own experiences before, during and after its arrival in our rural Florida county we call home.
