All crops are destroyed, sounds worse than Puerto Rico.

Hurricane season may be even worse in 2018 after a harrowing 2017

The US may have to brace itself for another harrowing spate of hurricanes this year, with forecasts of an active 2018 season coming amid new research that shows powerful Atlantic storms are intensifying far more rapidly than they did 30 years ago...

...natural variation will combine with escalating warming in the oceans and atmosphere, caused by the burning of fossil fuels by humans, to produce stronger hurricanes in the future. A warm ocean surface, combined with consistent wind patterns, contribute to the formation of fiercer, if not more numerous, hurricanes.

Will be interesting with our boat on the hard in Grenada. GrenDa is usually a safe spot, South of normal hurricane alley. But it does get hit occassionally. About once every 50 years.
