Tropical Depression: Public outrage over poor govt response to handling of Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma has weakened to a ‘tropical depression’, after previously reaching a category 5 in severity. It has left over 6 million without power as wind speeds reached 130mph (210kph). At least 48 people died. The hurricane has also thought to have caused $200 billion worth of damage.

As people still struggle from the aftermath, many also question the authorities' response to the crisis.
