Hurricane Jose threatens further destruction in Caribbean
Residents of Caribbean islands hit by Hurricane Irma are bracing themselves for more upheaval as Hurricane Jose threatens to wreak further havoc on the already storm-ravaged region.
On Friday, 21 people were killed and thousands displaced in the eastern Caribbean as Irma battered Cuba and the Bahamas. Now, near-category 5 Hurricane Jose is following a similar path, with the islands of St. Martin and St. Barthelemy expected to feel the full force of its 155mph winds over the weekend.
“I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to know that further damage is imminent,” inspector Frankie Thomas of the Antigua and Barbuda police said.
