*Hurricane Beryl Leaves Trail of Devastation in Southeastern Caribbean Island*

0:00

The southeastern Caribbean was in ruins Tuesday following Hurricane Beryl, which left huge amounts of infrastructural damage and several fatalities in its wake as it roared along with winds packing up to 150 kilometers per hour. Local authorities say this is the largest hurricane hit in this region since nearly 20 years ago. Heavy winds from the storm hit areas such as Barbados, Saint Lucia, and Grenada, destroying many houses completely.

On one Caribbean island, with some 3,000 houses, it was so destructive that the area was nearly destroyed. At least six people lost their lives to the fury of the storm, and even large trees were torn out from their roots.

Streets in Bridgetown, Barbados, and its environs are reportedly flooded. According to official reports, powerful winds blew off the roofs of houses in Saint Vincent and caused disruptions to electricity supply. In the southeastern islands of Grenada, relief operations were earlier carried out on Carriacou Island. The storm also pounded Jamaica; the winds of 240 kilometers per hour blew 480 kilometers southeast of Kingston, moving northwest at a speed of 35 kilometers per hour, according to the meteorological department.

Many areas that the storm has caught in its stride are being evacuated to safer locations. Reconstruction from the damage caused by the hurricane is likely to be an expensive proposition and will take up to a year, according to an estimate by the local Government.

The BCCI has sent a special flight to rescue the Indian team, which got caught in the fierce storm in Barbados, following the devastation caused by the hurricane.
