In 2017, Hurricane Irma destroyed the villages and neighborhoods on many Caribbean Islands as it tore through the ocean. It was one of the most intense and strongest storms to ever hit the area. Many people lost their lives, and many more lost their homes. The hurricane forced many families to start over, from scratch, as they tried to repair their homes after the hurricane. Some islands were spared, but others were affected drastically, almost to the scale of post-apocalyptic. There was so much debris, that many homes were unrecognizable (NPR).
