Hurricane Irma Attacks Tortola

Published on September 6th, 2017

Surrounded by mangroves, Tortola’s Paraquita Bay in the British Virgin Islands is where charter companies hide their boats from approaching storms. But it proved to be insufficient when Hurricane Irma arrived on Wednesday, September 6, 2017.

Photo date not available but believed to be prior to 2015.
