Spaniards Evacuated from Hurricane-Ravaged Caribbean Arrive in Madrid

MADRID – An airplane sent by Spain’s interior ministry to evacuate Spaniards from a Caribbean island devastated by Hurricane Irma returned to Madrid on Thursday.

Around 50 Spanish residents of the Caribbean island Saint Martin disembarked the Airbus at the Torrejon de Ardoz airbase in the capital.

At least 10 people died on St. Martin island because of the category 5 hurricane that hit the area in early September.

The storm, which was one of the largest Atlantic cyclones ever recorded, ravaged islands in the Caribbean and, in parts, reduced infrastructure and housing to rubble.

France, the UK, the Netherlands and Spain have all sent disaster relief assistance to territories affected by Irma.

At least 79 people were killed by the hurricane throughout the Caribbean and the United States.
