Irma's Arrival

When Irma approached Florida, many people were devastated down south. There was flooding and horrible winds! The wind caused a lot of destruction from ripping roofs off of buildings, to knocking trees over. As Irma approached the Jacksonville area, there was still a lot of flooding in certain places. Several people were not lucky and could not escape. The death toll is currently 69.

Irma's Aftermath

Luckily we have tons of people helping out the state of Florida.
