Devastation of Grand Turk Island by Hurricane Ike

Hurricane Ike was a Category 4 hurricane when it ripped through our southerly neighbour Grand Turk Island in the Turks and Caicos Islands. With sustained winds over 150 miles an hour, the devastation was horrific. Over 90% of the homes were damaged. The Lovely One is at the Red Cross today, packing supplies for the people of Grand Turk Island. These images tell a story of the destructive fury of Ike.
