KEY DEVELOPMENTS

Devastation and the extensive breakdown of essential services have followed Hurricane Irma, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded over the Atlantic. The Category 5 hurricane wrought havoc on many of the Caribbean islands, with maximum sustained winds of 296 km/h bringing heavy rains and causing deadly waves. Those winds lasted for 37 hours, making Irma the longest-lived storm of that intensity anywhere in the world for at least the past 50 years, according to the United Kingdom Met Office.
