Navy Overflight Shows Footage of Irma Damage to US Virgin Islands

The US Navy released footage on Sunday, September 17, showing the extent of damage wrought on the US Virgin Islands by Hurricane Irma, and said its 185-mph winds lasted 37 hours, the longest any cyclone on the globe has maintained that intensity.

Forecasters on Sunday said Tropical Storm Maria will likely strengthen to a hurricane, and could land on the US and British Virgin Islands as well as Puerto Rico by midweek. Credit: US Navy via Storyful
