Barbuda Hopes Online Betting Settlement Can Aid Irma Recovery

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:52:48 GMT

Barbuda's ambassador says they could afford to rebuild if the U.S. paid what it owes as the result of a 14 year trade dispute over online gambling.Barbuda was battered by Hurricane Irma.Pigs scrounge through the remnants of a grocery store and clothing store one week after Hurricane Irma wiped out Barbuda's infrastructure. With its residents evacuated, an array of free-roaming animals now search for food amongst the rubble.This image obtained from NASA Earth Observatory shows the islands of Antigua and Barbuda on August 21, 2017, (L) and after the passage of Hurricane Irma on September 8, 2017, (R). These natural-color images show some of Irmas effect on the British and US Virgin Islands. The most obvious change, according to NASA, is the widespread browning of the landscape. There are a number of possible reasons for this. Lush green tropical vegetation can be ripped away by a storms strong winds, leaving the satellite with a view of more bare ground. Also, salt spray whipped up by the hurricane can coat and desiccate leaves while they are still on the trees.
