Hurricane Irma: Storms Could Eventually Make Some Islands Uninhabitable

Hurricane Irma: Storms Could Eventually Make Some Islands Uninhabitable

Joe Ryan from Nenagh and his wife, Claire McAvinchey, have been living on Turks and Caicos for the past seven years and this Thursday had to leave their home for a hotel at Grace Bay in Providencials with their three-year-old son Oisin and new arrival Maebh.

Kitten said she even signed up for U.S. Embassy alerts but didn't receive any messages until it was too late.

Lowry and her vacation mates were fortified somewhat by talking to residents who'd experienced several hurricanes before.

"Can we get to the different islands", he said.

The hurricane sounded like "lots of trains in a tunnel" and at one point, she said, "It sounds like someone trying to drill in on the door from the outside".

Mr. Misick has been campaigning for the islands to become independent of Britain and says there is no reason why they could not be as successful as neighboring Saint Kitts and Nevis, which was granted independence in 1983. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely to continue during the next day or two, and Irma is expected to remain a powerful category 4 hurricane as it approaches Florida.

"First, we are all okay right now", she posted. Regardless, hurricane force winds of 74 miles per hour and greater are still very possible with storm surge and flooding rainfall.

They arrived on the island and enjoyed a few days until they started hearing about a developing hurricane in the Atlantic.

"Turks and Caicos is low lying coral islands and it's predicted that we may experience 15 to 30 feet waves that would completely flood all of our islands", he told Sputnik earlier this week.

Thousands of people have been evacuated from at-risk areas across the Caribbean. Chamberlain said they could find no way off the island after multiple calls to the airliner and embassy.
