Much of the Caribbean has been devastated by two major hurricanes that struck last month. Hurricane Irma first rampaged through the eastern Caribbean, British and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Cuba, leaving islands such as Barbuda and St. Martin nearly uninhabitable. Less than 2 weeks later, Hurricane Maria tore through Dominica and pummeled the Puerto Rican archipelago with great fury.
