The Caribbean area was as of late hit by two class V tropical storms that made broad annihilation and harm lives and property over the region. Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and Saint Kitts and Nevis were the most exceedingly terrible influenced. The typhoons murdered 27 individuals and obliterated 80pc of the structures in the little island country of Dominica. In Barbuda, 90pc of the structures were decimated and the majority of its populace was moved to neighboring Antigua. Comparable harms have been accounted for Saint Kitts and Nevis.

The legislature and the general population of Pakistan share the misery of the casualties and appeal to God for the early recuperation of the influenced areas.
