Hurricane Irma, a monster Category 5 storm, unleashed its fury over the Caribbean early Wednesday, packing potentially catastrophic winds as made its first landfall over the small island of Barbuda.
The strongest Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever recorded, with winds topping nearly 300 km/h, passed over the islands of Saint Martin, St. Maarten and Anguilla while causing extensive damage, according to Global News Chief Meteorologist Anthony Farnell.
