Angela Burnett recently released a book titled “Irma Diaries” to document experiences with this major hurricane for the Virgin Islands. Irma Diaries was a Category 5 plus hurricane, the strongest to ever make landfall in Atlantic history. The Irma Diaries transposes readers to The Virgin Islands on 6th September, 2017 and into the shoes of islanders on the frontlines of climate change. In a very intimate, personal style, The Irma Diaries captures the harrowing, yet amazing and inspiring and, at times, amusing accounts of the ordinary- turned-extraordinary people who battled through Hurricane Irma, minute by minute, and came out alive.

The Irma Diaries was written to stir global attention and action on climate change, to help The Virgin Islands adapt to continuing climate change impacts and to help rebuild the lives of those impacted by Hurricane Irma. Link:
