United Nations Secretary General visiting hurricane-ravaged islands

United Nations Secretary General António Guterres arrived in Antigua on Saturday as he embarks on a tour of hurricane-ravaged Barbuda and Dominica

His first stop was Barbuda, accompanied by Prime Minister Gaston Browne and several other government and United Nations officials.

Barbuda was decimated by Hurricane Irma last month, mere days before Dominica suffered a similar fate from Hurricane Maria.

Browne welcomed the visit of the UN official saying it would “bring global awareness to the destruction that has taken place here in the Caribbean”.

Guterres, said that it is clear that the natural disasters have intensified in recent days, making reference to the passage also of Tropical Storm Nate that killed several people in Central America this week.

“It is clear there is a direct link between climate change and the intensity of these storms,” he said, adding “what we are witnessing these days are more intensity and more destruction”.

        Yeh that red cross and UN >>>>>>>Not to mention the monies that the Clintons collected for the earthquake relief and was ever handed over. Haiti’s destruction was pure purpose work and covert. These are the crippling effects when you resist the beast.
