Hurricane Irma, a category 5 storm that is considered the strongest on record in the Atlantic, continues it’s devastating advance.  It has already struck Barbuda, St. Maarten, St. Kits and Nevis, with multiple fatalities and early reports of nearly total destruction of homes on some islands. There are millions of people still in the projected path of Irma’s incredible 300 km/hour winds, rain, and storm surges, which includes the islands of Puerto Rico, Haiti, Cuba, The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Turks & Caicos, and also Florida. GlobalMedic is responding.
