As Hurricane Irma begins to abate, those affected are slowly beginning to recover from the devastation.
The storm - previously the strongest Atlantic hurricane on record - has killed at least 11 people in the state of Florida. Twenty four people were killed in countries across the Caribbean as the storm barrelled through it last week.
Damage costs are already reported to be upward of $30bn (£22bn) across the areas affected.
As if these brutal statistics don't illustrate the extent of the damage, these before-and-after photos certainly do.
