New Photos From Florida Reveal The True Devastation of Hurricane Irma

Daily Express

A confluence of major storms rolled up and across the southern United States over the last two weeks. After Harvey leveled Houston the US came together to help the city get back on its feet. They didn't have long to wait before Hurricane Irma came bearing down on the coast of Florida.

Irma had already leveled entire islands through the Caribbean, and was likely going to be the most powerful storm to make landfall in decades. Though it didn't hammer Florida as hard as many people were expecting, and bracing for, that didn't make its destructive wake any less intense or eye-opening.

Here is Hurricane Irma's war-path in pictures.
