Hurricane Irma Attacks Tortola

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 an image of Tortola Bay prior to 2015.
