IMG_4075 September 18, 2017 Return to: An impressive carpet of dirt pulled up by Hurricane IrmaFull resolution (1600 × 1067) Image navigation This photo doesn’t do this damage from Hurricane Irma justice. A tree was toppled and pulled up a huge blanket of grass. The root ball of the tree is there, but most of this is dirt and grass on the other side. Plus, the sheer size is impressive – this curve of dirt is more than 6 feet tall. I got the shot Sept. 19, 2017, near our home in Naples, Fla., in the aftermath of the storm on Sept. 10, 2017.
