IMAGES from IRMA destruction of CUBA (amazing photos)

Sometimes the only way to explain an event is with photographs.  That’s the case with parts of Cuba that were crushed by Hurricane Irma on Saturday.  No words can describe the horror.

Hurricane Irma, packed with 125 mph winds, ripped roofs off buildings, uprooted trees, and forced evacuations along the coast.

Irma made landfall in Cuba overnight on Friday as a Category 5 storm.

And as dusk fell on Saturday, the churning waters had moved two blocks inland from the city’s popular seafront boulevard, with waters expected to permeate further as the surge grew, Reuters reported. So far there have been no reports of deaths in Cuba.

A hurricane warning remained in place as of 8 a.m. ET on Sunday for the Cuban provinces of Matanzas and La Habana.

The latest advisory from the US National Hurricane Center said that the searing winds and vicious rain conditions would continue in Cuba throughout Sunday morning as the storm barrels through the Florida Keys and towards the United States mainland.

The following photos are screenshots from a short video published by Reuters. A link to the video is below the photos.
