#Irma’s victims brace for another hurricane

Thousands of Irma victims across the Caribbean fought desperately to find shelter or escape their storm-blasted islands as another hurricane following close behind threatened to add to their misery.

With Irma and its 250 km/h winds taking aim at the Miami metropolitan area of 6 million people, the death toll in the storm’s wake across the Caribbean climbed to 22.

Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the eastern part of Cuba reported no major casualties or damage by mid-afternoon after Irma rolled north of the Caribbean’s biggest islands.
