Clean Up

Hurricane Ivan’s raging winds battered Tobago, Barbados and Grenada yesterday, tearing up roofs, trees and utility poles along the way. Ivan worked itself up to Category IV strength before hitting Tobago, where it knocked out power and sent hundreds scampering for cover at relief centres. Trinidad was spared any serious damage, apart from strong winds and rough seas.
