News Comment 3

“Hurricane Irma, One of the Most Powerful in History,  Roars Across Caribbean,” written by Frances Robles, Kirk Semple, and Richard Perez-Pena does a great job at answering questions the reader may have about the storm. Also, the adjectives used to describe the hurricane and the damage help to paint an accurate mental image. Some of those adjectives include “terrifying force” and “near-zero visibility.”

The article includes the approximate populations, known casualties, expected damage for the days to come, water height, and wind speed from. Quotes from The National Hurricane Center, Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda, Prime Minister Édouard Philippe of France, French interior minister Gérard Collomb,  and a few other important figures from surrounding countries and islands.

    This is a good example of why the NYT’s coverage of world news is among the best. It has the resources to cover in depth and in detail.
