It was all started with a tropical wave which originated from the coast of Africa at the beginning of August 2017. By August 17 it had reached the Lesser Antilles and was given the infamous name Tropical Storm Harvey as it inflicted heavy rain and wind on the island’s population. A short-lived sense of relief followed when the storm encountered drier air in the East Caribbean. The U.S. National Hurricane Center downgraded the risk on August 19, thinking the worst was over. Unfortunately for the states, however, the situation very rapidly took a turn for the worse.
