First came Hurricane Irma, smashing through the Caribbean last Sept. 6. Ten days later, there was even more devastation from Hurricane Maria

 

Lives were lost, and the damage to homes and businesses was immense. 

Hurricane Irma's punishing winds and life-threatening storm surge have already left an imprint, and there is more catastrophic damage expected to come as Irma takes a projected path up Florida's west coast.
