September has been and gone and it’s been quite an extraordinary month around the world. Let’s take a look back:

  • A big story of September was the devastating #HurricaneIrma. It was an extremely powerful hurricane that effected the Caribbean Islands and mainland Florida. A maximum wind speed of #HurricaneIrma was recorded at 185mph and it maintained this speed for many hours causing complete destruction. We can only imagine what a scary time this must have been for the people effected. We hope everyone managed to stay safe and can somehow start rebuilding their homes and life’s.
  • London was unfortunately hit by another #TerrorAttack at #ParsonsGreen underground station. Pictures that were posted online showed a bucket inside a bag on fire. This caused injuries to many people travelling on the underground. This was later confirmed as an attempted #TerrorAttack. The official threat level for the UK currently stands at severe (the highest level it can be).
  • Another devastating natural disaster was the #Earthquake in Mexico City. This has resulted in atleast 216 people being killed. The #Earthquake magnitude was recorded at 7.1. It caused severe destruction to the city and even caused buildings to collapse.
  • The #ChampionsLeague returned in September to which all football fans were excited with. Being able to listen to the #ChampionsLeague anthem and watching some of the world best teams play against each other. Who are you tipping to win it?
  • In the technology world #Apple released their new line of phones. These included the #iPhone8, #iPhone8Plus and the #iPhoneX. All of the phones come packed with new software and some slightly different design features. The #iPhoneX was the big talking point of the #AppleEvent with the new phone have a full screen on the front making the classic home button redundant. We will have another look back at the phone when it’s released later in the year.
