In what is being described as a ‘storm for the ages’, or Donald Trump’s grande distraction, Hurricane Irma burnt through the island of Barbuda today, leveling most of the country. According to its Prime Minister, 95% of the buildings in the country have been damaged or destroyed. The damage was so extensive and ‘unprecedented’, he said the island is now ‘barely habitable.’
“Barbuda is literally rubble,” Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda told an interviewer with ABS TV/Radio Antigua.
“The entire housing stock was damaged,” Browne said after visiting the island. “It is just a total devastation.”
