Hurricane Maria Rampages Through Dominica
“We will need help of all kinds.” That was the assessment of Dominican Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, who says Hurricane Maria — now downgraded to a Category 4 after hitting the island — has caused widespread damage. Skerrit lost the roof of his own house to the 155-mph winds, and says Dominica must focus on rescuing those who are trapped. The hurricane’s now headed for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, already devastated by Hurricane Irma. Meteorologists warn it could strengthen back to Category 5 by the time it makes landfall tonight.
